It’s going to stay might hot during the next couple of months. During summer activities, it is important to realize that the extreme heat in the Lowcountry can be dangerous to some pets. This month Jessica Schavone, our outreach coordinator, provides a quick overview of summer safety for dogs.
Most pet owners are aware that dogs should never be confined to areas without shade or climate control during the heat of the Lowcountry summer. Many cities have laws against leaving dogs confined to boats or cars unattended. The heat, however, poses some additional hidden dangers to pets. Being familiar with them could make this a happier, safer summer for every member of the family.
