The summer months bring opportunities to play in the water for both people and pets. While it brings much joy, water also is a source of concern. Some things to consider:
Many dogs enjoy swimming, but some dogs don't swim well and even the best swimmers can get tired. Life jackets for dogs can save lives.
If you have a pool, your dog needs to be supervised whenever they have access to the pool. You should take the time to train them how to safely enter and exit the pool from the shallow end.
Salt water can damage a dog's coat, so after any ocean dips take the time to hose them down with fresh water.
Don't let your pet stay wet! For some dogs, staying wet can lead to skin irritations, otherwise known as "hot spots." These can be a source of discomfort and infection for your pet.
Enjoy the summer but please make sure you keep yourself and your pet safe and comfortable
