During last summer Goettl Air Conditioning gave some worthwhile tips on how to protect our pets safe in the summer. This longstanding, Las Vegas based, HVAC company who are experts in keeping cool gave some great advice for our best companions as follows:
1. Keep the paws off the pavement- asphalt, cement, and truck beds can be hotter than they seem during the summertime. So, the American Veterinary Medical Association recommends staying off hot surfaces because they can burn your pet’s paws. Walking should be done in the morning or late evening.
2. Applying pet safe sunscreen- especially for pets with short, light colored coats, pet safe sunscreen should be applied to the pet’s nose and ears 30 minutes before going outdoors.
3. Get your pet properly groomed- as recommended by the American Veterinary Medical Association, this is for temperature relaxation and better circulation.
4. Water for drinking and splish-splashing- pets are unable to sweat like humans making it harder for them to cool in the summer. Therefore, they must have access to shady places and fresh and cool water during this time according to the Humane Society of the United States. Doggie pools are also great for them to stay cool and play in.
5. Keep them away from the garage- with the danger of antifreeze leaking due to vehicles overheating during the summer and the danger of some garden products and fertilizers, it’s crucial to keep pets away from the garage.
