Keeping Your Pets Cool during Extremely Hot Weather
Results Radio / Townsquare Media is proud to be a weather-ready ambassador for the National Weather Service. And with that designation comes responsibility.
So with temperatures warming into the 90's this weekend and heat indexes reaching the mid-to-upper 90's, it's time to talk about the importance of keeping your pets cool.
For example, did you know hot asphalt or cement can easily burn your pet's paws? Try to minimize walking your pet during the hottest part of the day.
If you're not sure how hot the asphalt is, place the back of your hand on it - if it's too hot for you, it's too hot for them.
Some other things to keep in mind:
- Limit Exercise
- Provide Shade, Water
- Don't Rely on a Fan
- NEVER Leave a Pet Unattended Inside a Vehicle
