‘Tis the season for pools, sun and lots of fun. However, in order to have the relaxing and summer we all deserve, it is important to keep a couple things in mind when having fun in the sun.
Pools tend to be the place to be during the year’s warmest months. When approached with caution, this can be a great way to spend time with your pet. However, if your pet is very young and timid or old and lazy, it is important that you keep a close eye on them when they are getting in the pool. Some manufacturers even product dog ramps so that it is always guaranteed that your pet will make it out of the pool.
Pets get sunburnt too! We are so busy lathering ourselves and our kids that we forget that pets with light skin and hair can also get a sunburn. A good pet owner should manage the time that his or her pet spends outside during the brutal summer months. Even a pet with an extensive amount of time in the sun can get skin cancer. By keeping these things in mind, you can treat you and your pet to a fun-filled summer.
