As the weather gets warmer, it's important to take steps to keep your dog safe and comfortable.
If your dog has a long or thick coat, you may want to consider trimming it to help them stay cool.
Be sure to pay attention to sensitive areas of your dog's skin, such as the ears, nose, and belly.
Keep your dog off of hot pavement, sand, and other surfaces that can burn their paws. You can also put booties on your dog to protect their feet.
Make sure your dog has access to shade and plenty of fresh water, especially during hot weather.
If you see any of the signs of heatstroke, such as heavy panting, excessive drooling, or vomiting, take your dog to the vet immediately.
If you're going for a walk with your dog in hot weather, take breaks in the shade and make sure they have plenty of water to drink.
