Alabama has some HOT weather…make sure to keep your pet safe! Make sure your dog takes regular breaks, has enough water and access to conditioned or air conditioned areas. Do not EVER leave your pet inside of your car, especially if your vehicle is parked in a hot area and even though you are away for only 10 or 15 minutes. Heat stoke can be VERY serious some dogs can fully recover from heat stroke; others may suffer permanent organ damage. Sadly many deaths due to heat strokes could be prevented. As many other things in life, in this case prevention is the key!
