    Keeping Our Furry Friends Cool

    Mon, Jul 17, 2006. 06:17 PM


    Well if you were hot today, imagine having to walk around in a fur coat.

    That’s life for our four-legged friends, and with temperatures like we saw today; there are some things you should do to keep your pets cool.

    All outside animals should be put inside, and if you don’t have air conditioning make sure there are fans or open windows, because just like humans, animals can overheat.

    “Some of the signs are going to be panting, lethargic, listless, actually can collapse, drooling, those are signs your pet is in distress from heat stroke and needs to have immediate attention,” **** County Animal Shelter Executive Director Larry H. said.

    Also you should never see the bottom of your animal’s water bowl—keep it filled.

    If you don’t keep your animal groomed, you should probably think about shaving it down.

    Cars are like ovens for pets; leave your dog or cat at home when you go running around town.



    It's sad how people are still ignorant
    about this. I hope that by posting this, somone not knowledgable (there are plenty), will make their pet(s) feel better !

    I see things like this where animals are tied outside in this kind of weather,
    almost everyday ! :mad:

    Gee..thanks for the tip Natty.

    Our 4 cats are camped by the open windows in front of the fans. They look quite comfortable...thank you very much! I, on the other hand, have been panting, lethargic, listless, fallen down a few times, and drooly. Luckily the last time I fell down I was close enough to the filled water bowl so I was able to revive myself.

    What's all that green stuff in the bottom of the bowl?

    Thanks Natty - took your advice and shaved all my animals, gotta be honest, the goldfish wasn't happy.

    PS. No need to worry about the car - I won't let the dog have the keys anymore, not since it started drinking........

    Don't let your pets end up like Pete - protect them from the heat.

    Oh that's right - pick now to start being Dogmatic and showing a Thirst for my errors. I happen to have a rare and remarkably strange neurological condition, that occasionally prevents me from typing the letters a,e,i,o,or u. Its known as irritable vowel syndrome, and I consider it to be in poor taste for you to make fun of me.......:p

    However, I shall rise above it, after all if I can't stand the Heat I shouldn't be in the kitchen....however Bad it gets.

    This small experiment in subliminal messaging should now have implanted the words Dog, Thirst, Heat & Bad, in the minds of all caring for animals during this heatwave.

    I would of course be mortally wounded if it was interpreted as a cynical attempt, to avenge having been caught making a literary error.

    So take that Big Oddy. Oops there it goes again...http://img116.exs.cx/img116/1231/z7shysterical.gif
