In very hot weather be very careful with having the dogs exercise and play hard.
Walking your dogs early in the morning or evening works better for them. The hot pavement can injure their paws. To help your pet, it is a good idea to spray their paws with bottle of ice water to keeps their paws cool. Keep your pets indoor, high temperatures inside can also be as dangerous to pets as high temperatures outdoors. Warning! if it is too warm for you it's also too warm for your pets.
Always be sure your pets have plenty of water.
Dog and cats skin is very delicate, skin cancer is a common form of cancer in dogs and cats. You can apply a specific
sunscreen that is made for pets. Do not use human sunscreen because it can be toxic for pets.
Look out for heat exhaustion: if you see your dog having trouble breathing, excessive panting, increased hear rate, weakness or collapsing call your vet immediately.
