Keeping pets safe from the heat

Posted: Updated:

 With the July 4th holiday approaching, celebrations may take place in the heat of the day and last through the night.

Here are some tips to keeping your pet safe:

  • Store fireworks in a safe place away from pets (or children)
  • Never leave your dog unattended while on the beach
  • Watch for signs of heat stroke. They include:
    • Rapid panting
    • Bright red tongue
    • Thick, sticky saliva
    • Weakness
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  • If you think your dog has heat stroke, take action: 
    • Move the pet into the shade and apply cool (not cold) water all over their body to gradually lower their temperature. 
    • Apply ice packs or cool towels to the pet's head, neck and chest only. 
    • Allow the pet to drink small amounts of cool water or lick ice cubes. 
    • Then take him to the nearest vet.
