The heat is here and your pets are feeling it! Especially ones with long coats. It is very important to keep your pet cool so your pooch doesn’t dehydrate. Make sure your pets, cats too, have plenty of fresh water. Do not leave them in a parked car, even in the shade.
Here is a cool pet pad and I mean COOL from Muttropolis. This pet pad does not use water, electricity or refrigeration, it is pressure activated. It comes in small, medium, large, and XL. As soon as your furry friend lies down the cooling effect starts. It will stay cool for up to 3-4 hours of constant use and will last for years. Re-charges itself automatically after a brief period of non-use. How cool is that?!
Tips: When I can’t get to the beach with my golden, I put a wet bandanna around her neck and spray water on her with a spray bottle. Don’t spray in the face or inside ears. (Some dogs hate to be sprayed).
Outward Hound makes a cooling bandanna for dogs using cold water.
Don’t have a pool or live by the beach? Get a plastic kiddie pool to put in your yard. It is cost effective and a great way to cool your dog! If your dog is water shy let him try it at his own pace. Place water in just to cover paws, coach him in with his favorite treat.
