You must have been waiting for the winter to end to have a lot of fun in the summer with your pet, but when the temperatures rise, your furry friend sweats differently than humans and can easily overheat. To avoid injuries, further skin and ear infections, and the possibility of heat stroke, here are some tips on how to care for your pet during the summer.

  1. Provide Plenty of Water & Shade

Dogs and cats feel thirsty more than we do when their temperature rises. In order to protect them from dehydration, you can monitor the symptoms and signs that indicate thirst, such as dry gums and excessive drooling. Here we advise you to quench his thirst constantly and bring a water bottle for your furry companion when leaving the house. You can also feed it some moist foods, such as fruits and vegetables that are high in water, to increase fluid intake.

It is also worth noting that you should keep your pet in the shade as much as possible, even if it likes to stay in the sun, as this may expose it to heat stroke. Also, don’t keep your lovely pet in the car so that it does not suffocate or get a harmful heat stroke.

  1. Don’t Shave Your Pet

Pet owners often shave their pet's hair because they think it's the best solution to overheating, but remember that their fur is naturally designed to keep it cool during the summer and warm in the winter. Alternatively, you can trim the fur on your pet and leave at least an inch of hair to protect your pet's skin from sunburn.

  1. Keep Your Pet's Paws Cool

When the sun shines, surfaces such as asphalt or metal can get very hot which can burn your pet’s paws and thus increase body temperature and lead to further injuries, so it is always advised to keep their paws clean and dry at all times.
