Summertime Safety

Summertime Safety!

Well, hot dog! It’s summertime again.

Keep your best friend safe and happy with the following tips:

• Provide plenty of shade and water.
• Limit exercise on hot days.
• Never, ever leave your dog in your car.
• If the sounds of summer (thunder, fireworks, construction, etc.) are causing your dog to be stressed, ask us about a new way of treating that calms without sedating.
