A hot and sunny day can seem like a perfect day for you and your pet. But did you know that hot summer weather can be more dangerous to dogs? It’s important that all dog owners know the potential warning signs of dog heat stroke and how to prevent it before it’s too late. Please make sure your pet is properly hydrated when going for a walk and never leave them in a vehicle regardless if the windows are down or parked in the shade. Dogs die in hot cars every summer. It only takes minutes for your car to reach a temperature that can cause heat stroke.
