Heat Safety Tips

signsofoverheating

Summer is in full swing – and last week truly was miserable for everyone. This week’s temps and humidity levels are simply delicious!

As a result, of course, heat safety is forefront in my thoughts. If you are away and I determine there are not enough water stations for your pet I will find other bowls to set out. I am adding ice – when available – to everyone’s water. Cats especially like ice cold water. I do love Frosty Bowlz and have one with 2 inserts so I can exchange as needed always keeping one frozen.

The Oregon Humane Society posted a great article on heat safety for pets. Check it out here.

And here’s an example of the Good Samaritan law being put into effect. Thankfully the pet parents were grateful but PLEASE! Just leave your pets at home during the summer. Please. I have a window breaky thingy and I’m not afraid to use it (after following the law’s guidelines of contacting the police and going to businesses the car is parked near).
