August always features some of the hottest days in Kriser’s major cities, and this weather can be a real drag for a pet wearing permanent fur coat. So quickly, we wanted to provide a couple of comfy options and tips to help keep your pet cool and comfortable.
Lots of water – make sure you keep cool, fresh water in the pet’s water bowl. For cats, who drink far less water, make sure you keep them on a moist diet so they don’t dehydrate.
Check out the RC Ultimate Cooling Coat for pups. This jacket absorbs water and promotes circulation at the same time, keeping your furry friend nice and cool.
Chill out on a Chillz Mat by Hugs Pet Products. This mat is filled with pressure activated gel that keeps pets cool and comfy, no water or ice needed. It is great for indoor and outdoor uses, and can be placed in a pet’s bed for a nice cool respite.
We know it goes without saying, but NEVER leave your pet stranded in a car. Temps can rise super fast, far exceeding the outdoor temperature in just 10 minutes.
Be cautious about their paws. Don’t let them put their tootsies on the pavement if you can’t comfortably put your hand down. Booties are always an option! Check out the ones by RC below.
Enjoy this summer. As always, if you have questions, see a Kriser’s pack member!
