July was Pet Hydration Month (sponsored by PetSafe), and although this is a little late, we still wanted to remind you to make sure your pets are properly hydrated in all of this heat! (Just in the past week we had "feels like" temperatures of 110*) Even though it has been a little bit cooler here recently it still gets pretty hot, and it's necessary to make sure all of the animals have enough water.
Did you know that your pet should have 1oz. of water, per lb. of body weight each day in order to stay properly hydrated? Symptoms of dehydration in your pet can include a lack of energy, vomiting, dry gums, excessive panting, etc. Be sure to watch your pets carefully in this heat, and keep an eye out for warning signs of dehydration.
