Hello Pet Parents!

As the summer heats up in Saskatoon, it’s important to focus on keeping pets safe in hot weather. Ensuring your furry friends are comfortable and protected from the heat is crucial. Here are some essential tips to ensure your pets stay happy and healthy during the hot months of July and beyond. Remember, keeping pets safe in hot weather should be a top priority.

Hydration is Key

  • Provide Plenty of Water: Always make sure your pets have access to fresh, cool water. Consider getting a pet-safe water fountain to keep their water supply fresh and inviting.
  • Monitor Water Intake: Keep an eye on how much water your pet is drinking. Dehydration can happen quickly in hot weather.

Avoid Hot Cars

  • Never Leave Pets in Cars: Even a few minutes in a parked car can be deadly for pets. The temperature inside a car can skyrocket quickly, putting your pet at risk of heatstroke.
  • Plan Ahead: If you need to run errands, leave your pet at home where it’s cool and safe.

Stay Indoors During Peak Heat

  • Cool Indoor Spaces: During the hottest parts of the day, keep your pets indoors with access to air conditioning or fans.
  • Provide Shade: If your pet must be outside, ensure there is plenty of shade where they can escape the sun’s rays.

Beach and Outdoor Activities

  • Beach Safety: If you’re heading to the beach, bring an umbrella or canopy to provide shade for your pup. Make sure they have fresh water to drink and avoid letting them drink saltwater.
  • Cool Walks: Schedule walks for early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler, and always bring water for both you and your pet.

Regular Grooming

  • Grooming: Regular grooming can help your pet stay cool. Remove excess fur and check for mats that can trap heat. Furbaby Pet Care offers a bath-and-brush-out service that can help refresh your dog during the hot weather.
  • Watch for Signs of Overheating: Heavy panting, drooling, and lethargy can be signs your pet is too hot. Move them to a cool area immediately and offer water.

Cooling Products

  • Cooling Mats and Products: Consider getting a cooling mat or vest for your pet. These products can provide relief from the heat and help regulate their body temperature.
  • Frozen Treats: Offer your pets frozen treats or ice cubes to help them cool down from the inside out.
