4 Summer Pet Essentials on Your Next Pet Shop Run

Summer is upon us and if the weather reports are right, it’s about to get hot– really hot. While you might have the summer gear to protect you from the heat, what about your dogs? No worries, though! All you need to keep your pup cool is in your favorite pet shop in Tiendesitas.

We all love to go outside and enjoy the warm weather, our dogs included. But like us humans, our pets are also at risk when it gets too hot. For one, dogs (especially older ones)  can become dangerously overheated in temperatures just warmer than 21.11 °C. Heavy panting, excessive drooling, or an inability to walk straight are some warning signs that your furbaby might be too hot.   

Another thing to watch out for are parasites, which can be found at their highest numbers during the summer.  Ticks, fleas, and mosquitos are all rife through the warmer months and may cause real problems for your pet.

The best way to have fun with your dog and keep them safe this summer is to provide them shaded areas to play in, keep them hydrated, and pay close attention to their health. To help you do that, here are some pet essentials you need to stock up on:

Dog Soap/Shampoo

What better way to cool off than with a nice bath? But first off, you don’t want to use soaps and shampoos for humans on your dog as they are too harsh for their skin. Look for a pH-balanced soap or shampoo that’s safe for their skin and fur. Not sure what to get for your furbaby? Ask your pet store attendant what soap or shampoo works best for your dog’s breed and needs.

Portable dog bowl

Keeping your dog hydrated is a top priority and having a portable water bowl with you will make the job a whole lot easier. A collapsible water bowl is easy to transport and easy to use: just take it out, expand it, pour water in, then fold it back. With your life so much easier, you have more time to play with your best friend!

Electrolyte supplements or solutions

If your furbaby is extra playful, water may not be enough to keep them hydrated. Electrolyte solutions can help rehydrate, re-energize, and replenish your active dog. They replace electrolytes lost during stressful conditions like hot weather and strenuous exercise. Some of these are water-soluble; just add the solution to your pet’s water bowl and they’ll be rehydrated in no time.

Dog booties or socks

Your dog’s paws have footpads that can usually handle whatever a stroll or walk in nature throws at them but a lot of human-made surfaces can burn your dog’s paws. The rule is that if the ground is too hot for you to touch, then it’s too hot for your dog to walk on. It’s always better to wait for the weather to cool down before taking them out for walks and have them wear booties or socks for an added layer of protection.

Find these and everything you need to arm your furbaby against the summer heat in any of the pet shops at Tiendesitas!
