Safety First in Hot Weather
Mother Nature seems to have sidetracked Spring this year in the Midwest--it started quite late, and now we are already having hot Summer temps! So this means putting our safety caps on and being careful not to overdo long walks and outdoor play, and being strategic when we do go out.
We've created a consolidated list for basic Summer safety tips, and provided a few links for even more details.
Enjoy the outdoors and stay safe, too!
Practice basic Summer safety:
- Never leave your pets in a parked car
- Watch the humidity
- Limit exercise on hot days
- How hot is the road? HOT ASPHALT AWARENESS!
- Don't rely on a fan
- Provide ample shade and water
- Cool your pet inside and out (with frozen treats)
- Watch for signs of heat stroke
- Be properly prepared for power outages (so everyone stays cool!)
My Dog Nose It!
Don't forget, your dog can get sunburned too!
Many of the ingredients in human sunscreens are toxic to dogs. Make sure you are using a pet-safe product such as My Dog Nose It for your precious pooch--a natural, safe and water resistant sun protector for your best friend! Proudly Made in the USA.
My Dog Nose It was created to keep your best friend safe from the environment they love to play and be in! Completely natural and water resistant, this paraben-free sun protector is safe to use on any Fido or Fifi.
