Southern California Heat Wave


Today begins what will hopefully be a short heat wave here in So.Cal.. So, how can you and your pets beat the heat?

  • Keep hydrated by drinking water

  • Make sure your pets are drinking fresh clean water

  • Try popsicles to stay cool

  • Try making small ice chips for dogs to chew on

  • Mist your bird if you see signs of overheating

  • Wear sunscreen

  • Stay in the shade

  • Wear light loose clothing

  • If your dog gets hot, put paws in cool water for a refresher


  • Above all, stay cool and please don't leave any animal in a vehicle during hot weather.


    Bark at you later,
    PJ the dog blogging dog :-)
