With the sweltering heat, everyone looks to stay as cool as they can, and this includes your pets. 

 

The Humane Society of Central Oregon offers tips to help keep you pets healthy when the thermometer rises into these uncomfortable temperatures. 

 

If your pet is kept outside during the day, be sure there is adequate shade and access to water.  Remember that overweight dogs overheat quickly in hot weather. 

 

Exercise your dog early in the morning or after sundown when the pavement is cooler.

 

And remember: never leave your pet in a parked car, even with the windows cracked.  The internal temperature can easily reach 120 degrees in just a few minutes.

 

Truck beds are dangerous too.  They can become extremely hot; especially when parked in the sun.  Unsecured dogs can fall out of a truck bed into traffic.
