To learn how you can ensure that your pet stays in great shape during the summer, we invite you to keep reading!

Pet Care During Hot Weather

Heat can have a big impact on your pet, and you don't want it to get too warm when they're playing outside. To prevent any complications that can occur due to the heat, it’s essential that your pet consumes healthy food and drinks enough water.

Keeping Your Pet Hydrated

Just like people, pets need plenty of water to stay healthy. Since dehydration can occur more in the summer, make sure that your furry friend has plenty of fresh and cool water to keep it hydrated. Keeping your pet hydrated also reduces the risk of heatstroke.

Avoid Excessive Exercise in the Heat

Playing with your pet is a lot of fun, however, you don’t want your cat or dog exercising too hard when it’s warm outside. Make sure that your pet gets plenty of rest and stays cool and comfortable, which can help it stay healthy.

Maintain Proper Nutrition

A proper nutrition is important for your pet’s health. When your pet consumes healthy food, it can avoid obesity, allergies, and fur loss. Our veterinarians can work closely with you and provide guidance on the foods that your cat or dog should be consuming during the summer. With a proper diet, your pet can process the food more easily and enjoy the warm weather.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Great care of my cat! All the staff were wonderful to deal with and you can tell they really care and love what they do! Thanks for taking care of us!"
  • "Dr. Henderson is a caring Vet. We love him.
    We do not, however, love the prices Vets charge. It is more for a pet visit than a human being. I don't know how people with more than one animal afford pet care."
