With record temperatures around the country, it is important to keep your dogs cool. Gresham Animal Hospital would like to help everyone keep their pets safe this summer. Read our Safe Summer Tip #4 for a Happy Dog below.

Keep your dog hydrated!
Different dogs have different needs when battling the heat. Keep in mind that darker coats absorb more heat than lighter coats. Also, overweight dogs are at higher risk for dehydration. Carry a bottle of water when going on a walk

with your dog. Better yet have your dog carry it for you in a backpack or a vest! The water in the bottles will keep the dog cooler and also give the dog a sense of purpose.
