Keep Your Pet Hydrated


  • The temperatures have continued to rise over the years, some temperatures have shown to skyrocket into the triple digits, which means we should all be drinking more water.
  • Since the weather is unpredictable and it can be a scorching temperature at any given time frame, be considerate to your pets when choosing to partake in high-energy outdoor activities.
  • Choose to take that family walk at a cooler point in the early morning or a sunset stroll when the temperatures have decreased.
  • During the hottest points of the day, it might be a great opportunity to get some rest and relaxation indoors with your furry friend. When choosing your outdoor plans always take into consideration your pet’s age, health, and a regular exercise regime.
  • The use of comfortable bedding, cooling vests, and properly running fans can go a long way when providing comfort after a day outside in the heat. Additionally, finding a comfortable shady spot away from the heat is a wonderful option. The use of a covered patio or umbrella is a way for a pet to escape the direct sunlight and can detour dehydration.
  • Take an opportunity to take a dip in the pool. Going swimming with your pet is a nice way for you to both cool off from the heat and is a fun bonding activity. Also, having a small kid’s pool is a great way for your pets to cool off while hanging outside with the family.
  • It seems like an easy one to remember, but how often do we forget to drink water? Always provide fresh cold water that is accessible for your pet.
  • The use of a collapsible bowl, filtered water bottle, and a misting portable fan are wonderful options to keep your pet cool. These items are easy to keep in a backpack and store so you have at your disposable at any time.
  • Dehydration, heat stroke, and heat exhaustion are just a few conditions that can occur when a pet does not stay hydrated. Always consult with your veterinarian when choosing an exercise regime and seek care if needed.
  • By conserving your pet’s energy, providing positive resources, choosing safe, light activities and keeping that water bowl full, you are providing a healthy and fun way for your pet to stay fully hydrated during this summer season.
