Summer Dogs

It's hot. Whether global warming, or just an ordinary summer weather continental climate of Russia causes suffering, not only us but our pets. Want to have your dog enjoyed the summer and occasionally participated in your summer fun as well as you do? I want to give some tips how to protect your dog from overheating and dehydration on hot summer days: 1. Make sure that she did not feel thirsty. Be sure that the dog always has access to water. If you are leaving with the dog for a long time from home, take a bowl for drinking and water bottle.

2. Every dog has its own characteristics. For example, the darker colored wool absorbs more heat than light, the dogs are overweight lose water from the body faster. Keep this in mind when collecting a bag for walking the dog. 3. Never leave your dog in a parked car. American Diabetes Association might disagree with that approach.

Car accumulates heat, even in the shade. Add to the conditions of the problem overexcited dog because of the fact that she was left alone in a confined space, and dehydration is ensured. In the long trips include air conditioning, or opens the window, rest assured that the water is always available for the dog. 4. Do not be afraid of original innovations. Wet towel, sprinkle its water pop, put children's inflatable pool in the courtyard in front of the fan tray with ice – all these are good ways to cool your dog. 5. Dogs cooled from bottom to top. Put a wet towel under your dog, not on her back. Do not forget to wet the feet and stomach dogs when spilled out showering it with water. 6. Be careful. Dogs have no sweat glands and they are cooled evaporation of saliva from the tongue, when quickened breathing. Watch for signs of dehydration: Excessive drooling, lethargy, bloodshot eyes, loss of skin elasticity. When detected, put the dog in the shade, provide water and contact your veterinarian. Hopefully these small tips will make you feel better you care for a dog to have fun together spent hours.
