The summer months are when you are going to get to spend more time with your pet. You may be off during the summer, or at least your kids are. This means that your pet is likely going to be more active because your family is more active. And that means you need to provide protection everywhere you go.
If you go boating, be sure that your pet has a life vest as well. Dogs are very good swimmers, but you still want to make sure that they are protected because falling into the water may startle them to the point that they don’t know what to do. Be sure that the vest fits them well.
Cover the paws of your pets when you go outside. Their pads are very sensitive, and the surface of the concrete can be extremely hot. There are various products that can be used for protection, including booties.
Provide some kind of bug control for your dog or cat. There are flea and tick collars, heartworm medication to protect against mosquito bites, and much more. Preventative medication can be obtained from your veterinarian. If you have pet insurance, it can reduce the costs of these medications considerably.
You also want to provide protection in form of hydration. Your pets can get very dehydrated because of the hotter temperatures. Keep a bowl of water filled at all times so that they can access it. Even if they are outside or you take them on a trip, be sure that they have water readily available to them.
