Summer time is here and your dog can feel the heat! Picnics, beach parties, and walks in the park are all great and wonderfully fun activities to do with your dog. But summertime can be dangerous for your fluffy family members too. Between the heat and the hot sidewalks, summertime can be rough on your dog. Familiarizing your dog with brand new places can be very beneficial for them!

10. Hydrate

Prevent dehydration by providing your dog with unrestricted access to fresh, cool water inside and outside. Ice cubes and treats like frozen chicken or beef broth encourage your dog to take in more fluids and will help keep him cool. You might also switch to a wet dog food during the hotter months to increase fluid intake. Encourage your pet to drink up often.

Bring your fluffy family members in for checkups, shots, and vaccines at Gresham Animal Hospital! Call us at 503.666.1600.
