Keep Pets Safe in a Summer Heatwave.

 Leave them at home, not in your car.

Dogs feet can burn on hot pavements.

Walk in grass, in shade during the day or wait til the sun goes down.

Cats may prefer a dark cool room to a sun patch.

Feed a little less and make sure your pets are drinking enough.

Add broth or water to both wet and dry food esp. for animals who only eat kibble.

Signs of heat stroke are excessive panting, restlessness or listlessness.

Cool the head, stomach and feet with a damp washcloth or an ice pack.

If your pet is unresponsive, it may need to be medically hydrated by a Veterinarian.

Be Safe.
