Summer time is here and that means much more time spent outside. This means it is important to keep tabs as it gets hotter outside be sure to watch for symptoms of heat stroke for your pet.
This is what I did with my golden retriever when she got older I actually shaved her down to make it look like she’s a Labrador retriever during the summer months and I’m going to tell you what a huge difference that made.
It’s essentially a matter of fact I don’t think we realize it even though your pets fur is short he still feels a lot more heat than we do so should I also suggest for your pet to brush them a lot more.
(Pet Information – If you’re going to shave your pet then be sure for your pet safety that you have sunscreen for your pet fair skin.)
Another big mistake people make in the summer time with their pets is we exercise them just as much as we did in the winter time. They should exercise a little less or less running around.
