How to care for your pet in 2018 is still a work in progress.
Here’s how to prepare yourself and keep your pet safe in 2018.1.
Protect your pets from heat, cold, humidity and other stressors, especially in the summertime.2.
Do not leave your pet unattended during the heat of summer.
If you have your pet indoors, you may want to get a heater that will heat up the room and provide a place for your pets to stay.3.
Never allow your pet to go outside during hot weather.
Keep your pet under a blanket and keep him/her safe by keeping him/she indoors.4.
If your pet is ill or injured, contact your vet.
Veterinarians have a limited number of cases they can diagnose and treat.
If the vet believes your pet needs medical attention, the vet will order an X-ray and then take a sample for the appropriate blood test.5.
When it comes to the pets you own, take extra precautions to keep them safe and well-behaved.
If possible, keep your pets indoors during hot summer weather.
Your pets will have better odds of surviving heat and cold and they will have fewer stressors to worry about.
If you are concerned about your pet getting sick, you can always contact your local veterinarian for more information on heat and heat related illnesses.
