The Anywhere Vet

As pet owners, we all want to keep our furry friends safe and healthy. And, with the summer ramping up, pet owners are naturally looking for outdoor activities to enjoy with their pets. While the warm weather brings plenty of fun, the heat and humidity can also take a toll on our pets. In this article, we will cover some tips and strategies to help keep your dogs and cats cool, comfortable, and safe during these warm summer months.

1. Know Your Pet’s Limits: Just like people, dogs and cats have different tolerances for heat and exercise. Factors like breed, age, weight, and overall health can all play a role in how well your pet handles the heat. Be sure to monitor your pet’s behavior and activity levels and adjust accordingly as needed. You should take extra precautions if you have a pet that is brachycephalic (short/squished nose), overweight, or elderly as they will be more sensitive to heat and humidity.
