8 Things You Can Do to Protect Your Dog in the Summer

2.Make sure your dog has unlimited access to fresh water;
3.Make sure your dog has access to shade when outside;
4.Take walks during the cooler hours of the day;
5.When walking, try to stay off of hot surfaces (like asphalt) because it can burn your dog's paws;
6.If you think it's hot outside, it's even hotter for your pet – make sure your pet has a means of cooling off;
7.Keep your dog free of external parasites (fleas, ticks) and heartworms – consult your veterinarian about the best product for your pet;
