Pet Tip of the Week: Summer (



Howling 2 wolves and meby Dawn Watson (


   We all know that dogs that are left outdoors for extended periods of time during hot weather are subject to dehydration and death. Likewise, the public has been educated about the dangers of leaving dogs in cars when temperatures rise over 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Here are a few more tips to ensure that your dog has a safe summer:

  • Street and sidewalk surfaces can cause blisters and burns on a dog’s paws. Avoid having your dog walk on these surfaces for extended periods of time
  • If you must leave your dog outdoors be sure he has shade and several filled water bowls
  • Owners of dogs that are left outdoors for extended periods of time are now subject to fines and arrest in most counties
  • Fleas can be removed by using Dawn dishwashing detergent as a bathing solution
  • Remove ticks by soaking a cotton ball in hand sanitizer. Hold the soaked cotton ball on the tick and it will suffocate and can then be easily removed. In addition, the area on which the tick was located is cleansed by the sanitizer
  • Do not allow your dog near antifreeze or weed killer, common items used during the summer
  • Dogs’ noses are easily sunburned; Sunblock for babies will protect your dog. Apply often in case your dog licks it off


   If you follow these tips you and your best friend will enjoy a safe summer, together!
