Beat the Heat! Keeping Your Pet Cool Indoors

Pet safety: Dog staying cool

In the middle of the dog days of summer, when the hot, humid temperatures linger, it feels hot no matter where you go. It can even be hard to maintain the cool inside the home, particularly when the humidity rises or when the air conditioning isn’t working properly (or in an outage). Your pet may feel the misery, too, without some preventive measures to keep them from becoming hot.

Beverly Hills Veterinary Associates knows the struggle of the hot, hot summer, so we want to provide some tips on keeping your pet cool indoors. Let’s take a closer look!

Why Indoor Pets Still Require Vaccines and Parasite Prevention

One of the most common misconceptions among pet owners is that an indoor pet doesn’t require vaccination. This is particularly true among indoor cat owners whose pets may never or rarely leave the home. This question of whether to vaccinate also extends to parasite prevention, such as flea and tick control and heartworm prevention.

At Beverly Hills, we want to stress the importance of vaccines and preventives for all pets, regardless of where they spend most of their time.
