Pets can overheat just as easily if not easier than we can. It is very important to have plenty of water available to your pet during the warm months. There are also several products available to help keep your pet cool. They include cooling mats, chilly vests (ice packs can be inserted in the vest to keep your dog cool), popware reusable water bowls and cooling dog boots. Any of these products would be an excellent way to keep your pet cool during outdoor activity.

For most of us, our pets are more than just furry companions, they are our best friends, our confidants and our “kids”. The connection and bond we share with them is incredibly strong. No one ever wants to consider the short life span of a pet when you are bringing home that cute kitten or puppy.
