Take these steps to cool off pets
Thousand Palms, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/10/2019 -- Summer in Southern California is certainly heating up! Unfortunately, relying on fans won't keep the sweat outside. Timo's Air Conditioning & Heating knows how essential an air conditioning repair in Rancho Mirage, CA, and beyond can be—for people and pets alike.
The weather affects everyone and everything in the home, especially pets. While individuals can vocalize that they're feeling the heat, animals can't. So, how do pets show they're losing their cool? Well, all animals communicate their discomfort differently—but summer in the desert is no time to play the guessing game. The best way to protect dogs, cats and other pets from the heat is through an air conditioned home.
Although taking steps to improve home air conditioning is what families—fur babies included—need this summer, there are several ways to do even more:
Ensure pets always have plenty of fresh, cool water. This keeps them hydrated and prevents overheating.
Use a misting hose when preparing for a long day outside. It entertains pets while also taking care of the lawn.
Fill up a kiddie pool with water to help pets cool off their hot coats. Be mindful of how pets react to water—it may not comfort all of them and could put them in danger if they can't swim.
Locate shaded areas before going for a hike or run around the park. All pets need to rest no matter how much they want to play.
Move playtime to early morning before the sun warms everything and/or at dusk when it's starting to cool down again. This will tire out pets when the heat is more tolerable, encouraging them to go inside and enjoy the air conditioning during the highest temperatures of the day.
Leave the shopping buddy at home when running errands. An open window in a hot car isn't enough to keep animals cool, no matter how excited they look to come along.
