The Importance of Seasonal Pet Safety in Oakland, CA


Pet safety is extremely important, especially in the summer months where high heat and rampant pests make everyone’s lives more difficult. We have provided three of the most important pet safety tips for the summer.

Heatstroke Safety

During the summer months, heatstroke is a major concern for our pets. In order to keep your pet safe from heatstroke, we recommend that they always be provided with fresh, cool water in endless supply and they are given a cool, relaxing place to lie down, preferably in the house. Pets should never be left unattended in a parked car as temperatures in a vehicle can rise to unbearable levels in minutes. There have been many cases of pet death in vehicles reported in summertime. Please don’t let your pet be another statistic.

Prevention of Fleas and Ticks

During the summer months, the threat of parasites increases tenfold, putting our pets at great risk! We encourage the use of year-round pest preventatives to ensure that your pet is not only protected from fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, but also from the potentially deadly diseases these pests carry!
