This week the Ozarks may see temps climb to 100 and above with heat index factors in triple digits!

Hot weather is very hard on our animals. Here are some tips to keep them safe during this hot spell.

  1. Limit time outdoors. Take walks in early morning or late evening.
  2. The asphalt com burn your furry pets paws. Walk in the grass when possible
  3. Heat stroke can be deadly to our pets. Be aware of signs of overheating as well. If your dog is drooling excessively, panting heavily, having seizures, or collapsing, they may be experiencing overheating or heat stroke.  Take them to the Vet immediately.
  4. If your pets live outdoors, make sure shade and cool water is available at all times.
