As the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, it’s important to remember the health and safety of your four-legged, feathered, or scaled family members. Our pets face many dangers during the summer months, but you can keep them safe with Bird and Pet Clinic of Roseville.
- Heatstroke: Heatstroke is common in the summer, and it’s important to take precautions to keep your pets safe. Never leave pets outside for long periods of time in the heat, and don’t leave them unattended in hot cars. Keep your pet inside with the air conditioning on, or if they have to be outside, give them plenty of cool water to drink, and a shaded area where they can rest.
- Beach Safety: Going to the beach with your pet can be a fun time… but it can also be dangerous. The sand at the beach can get extremely hot, and your pet is barefoot. Their paw pads can be easily burned from the hot sand. Take them to the beach in the morning or evening when it’s cooler. And don’t let them drink ocean water, or else they could suffer from salt water poisoning.
