Keeping Our Furry Friends Safe during the Summer
Posted on Jun 3rd, 2019
Now that summer is upon us, it's important to remember to keep Fido and Fluffy safe when outdoors. Remember as the temperatures rise, so does the heat from the sidewalks and roadways. Sometimes, these temperatures can reach upwards to 120 degrees! Much too hot for our furry friends' paws.
How do you know when it's too hot? Try this test: if you can stand on the sidewalk in your bare feet for more than 5 seconds, then it's fine to walk. If you can, try walking first thing in the morning before the sun's ray have a chance to heat up the sidewalks. Alternatively, there are special boots available for your dog.
Let's keep our pets safe this summer!
