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:

  1. Never leave your pets in a parked car
  2. Watch the humidity
  3. Limit exercise on hot days
  4. How hot is the road? HOT ASPHALT AWARENESS!
  5. Don't rely on a fan
  6. Provide ample shade and water
  7. Cool your pet inside and out (with frozen treats)
  8. Watch for signs of heat stroke
  9. Be properly prepared for power outages (so everyone stays cool!)
