Summer Safety and Hot Weather Pet Tips

MURRAY, UT (July 22, 2019)—Summer concerns for pet owners from the Humane Society of Utah 
 
 
Safety concerns increase with the temperatures as more pets spend time outdoors during the summer months. The extreme heat poses dangers for people and pets alike.  Pet owners should minimize outside exposure for their pets during the day to prevent heat exhaustion and heatstroke. If you notice signs or symptoms of heat-related illness in your pet, take them to your veterinarian immediately. Heatstroke can be fatal if not treated promptly.
