It is no surprise that summers in Plano can be very hot. You need to know how to protect your pooch so that your dog is comfortable and well as protected. By following a few tips it will be easy to do this, and your dog will thank you for it.
Remember that you need to be conscious about exercise times. The hottest part of the day is the worst time for your dog to be outside exercising. Allow your dog to exercise during the morning hours or in the evening, and even then use shade as a way to give them a break.
Concrete is never good on anyone’s feet – and this includes the paws of your dog. Go to the pet store and purchase booties or some kind of paw protection, such as adhesive pads, so that your dog can walk along the pavement without burning paws.
Keep your dog hydrated at all times. This includes providing access to water nonstop, using wet food in combination with dry food during feeding times, and knowing the signs of overheating. If your dog is starting to pant excessively, it’s time to cool him down and give him a drink.
Many people forget that there are a lot of bugs outside during the summer months. You can do a lot to protect your pooch by making a visit to the veterinarian to talk about prevention medication. This includes protecting against threats such as fleas and ticks as well as heartworm, which can be transmitted by a mosquito bite.
