Barbecues, boating, beach, camping, and hot weather are some of our favorite things about summer, but for our pets, they can be life-threatening.
This year, whether you’re hitting the beach or just the backyard, make sure you’re keeping your pet’s safety in mind. Here are 15 important summer safety reminders for every pet owner.
The Barbecue (and everywhere else too!)
#15 Don’t Share Your Snacks
Barbecuing is one of the biggest perks of warm weather, but remember that the food you eat may be poisonous to pets. Raisins, grapes, onions, avocados, and chocolate are common barbecue fare that are toxic to animals. Remind well-meaning guests not to sneak pets any table scraps.
#14 Keep Alcohol Out of Reach
It may seem obvious, but alcohol is extremely dangerous to dogs. Even small amounts. This includes beer.
#13 Stay in the Shade
Pets dehydrate quickly. If you’re going to be outside, be sure to carry plenty of fresh water and stay near shade.
#12 Secure the IDs
Time spent outdoors comes with increased chances of bolting or escaping. If you haven’t already, make sure your pet is fitted with a microchip or ID tag with identifying information including your phone number.
