Keeping Your Pet Cool During Hot Summer Days

Summer is here and with it comes the heat!  Our pets love playing outside and soaking up the sun.  Here are some tips to keep our four-legged friends cool.

Water is a necessity when our pets are outside.  Also, we can provide them with frozen snacks to keep them cool and hydrated including:

  • Frozen Banana Bites
  • Berries and Ice
  • Frozen Carrots
  • Chicken Pops (made with frozen baby food)

Here are some great recipes to try:  https://www.pinterest.com/explore/summer-dog-treats/.

You can purchase effective cooling items.  Puppy paws ice cream is a favorite. This is a yummy treat every pet can enjoy outside in the heat. In addition to cooling treats, these products can keep your pets cool:

  • Cooling Vest
  • Cooling Mat
  • Cooling Collar
  • Baby Pool/Sprinkler

Help your pet beat the heat this summer!
