3 tips to keep your pets cool this summer

July 25, 2014

Here are a few tips for keeping your pets cool in the summer.

While we often focus on ourselves when it comes to the extreme summer heat, many of us have a furry creature in the house who is just as susceptible to its dangers – our pets. Whether you are a dog person or a cat person, it's going to be crucial that you do everything that you possibly can to keep them safe and comfortable during the height of the summer months. As the country enters into the warmest part of the season, the dangers presented to our animals are only going to increase.

Here are a few tips to keep your pets cool this summer:

  • Have water available: One of the main things that can plague a pet during the summer is dehydration. You should be on top of their water bowl constantly to make sure that they have an adequate amount of fresh and clean water available to drink.
  • Keep them inside: While your furry friend might want to run around outside, you should limit his time to when the sun is not going to be as strong. Early in the morning or in the evening is the optimal time, as the outdoor temperature will have naturally cooled down. Other than that, they should be kept inside.
  • Turn up the AC: Even when you leave the house, you should keep the air conditioner running to keep the interior of your household at a comfortable temperature for your pet. They will likely find a spot on the tile to keep their whole bodies cool, so the air around them should be bearable.
