The National Weather Service has issued a heat wave advisory for this Friday through Monday in Ventura County and surrounding areas, with triple-digit temperatures predicted. Soaring temperatures can mean big trouble for animals. Heat-related problems are some of the most common issues of summertime ailments. We are sure all our pet parents have heard this before, but it is vitally important to be aware of what heat can do to our loved ones!
Do not leave pets (or people) in enclosed vehicles, even for a short period of time. Temperatures inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can quickly rise to life-threatening levels. The safest thing you can do is leave your pets at home in a cool area indoors with plenty of water. Stay cool this Summer everyone!
