Keep your dog from overheating
We all struggle when it comes to super hot summer heat, but dogs have also fur and can cool themselves down just by the tongue. Did you know that?
We have to be careful if we are going out to the beach, for a walk or hike, anywhere where we will be at the direct sunshine and avoid possible overheating.
How do I know my dog can be overheated?
- excessive panting or difficulty breathing
- dehydration (signs of dehydration include dry nose, visible tiredness, or sunken eyes)
- excessive drooling
- fever (if your dog's nose is dry and hot instead of wet and cool, he could have a fever)
- lack of urine
- shivering or shaking
- vomiting or diarrhea
How to avoid it?
- bring a lot of water with you and stop frequently to drink some. Both of you.
- try to walk, run, hike in the shade
- avoid the hot sidewalks, choose grass or soil instead. When you cannot held your hand on a sidewalk for 5 seconds, it's too hot for the paws of your best friend too
- treat the paws with our Paw Care every time you feel the paws are getting dry
