Keep your pets safe & sound as the weather and temperatures fluctuate.
Here are some tips & reminders to help keep furbabies safe

Never ever leave your pets in a parked car - not even for a minute. Temps rise to dangerous levels in no time at all.

Watch the humidity -  You know how easily people sweat when it is humid out. Pets don't sweat, so their core temp can skyrocket quickly. Their temps should not be allowed to get over 104 degrees.
Limit exercise on hot days - Adjust the intensity and duration of exercise in regards to the temperature. Limit exercise to early morning or evening hours in warm temps. Asphalt gets very hot and can burn your pet's paws, so walk your dog on the grass if at all possible. Clean up if your dog leaves a "gift" on someone else's lawn. ALWAYS carry water with you to keep your dog from dehydrating.
Provide ample shade & water - Protection from the heat & sun are a must as is plenty of fresh, cool water. Tree shade & tarps are ideal because they don't obstruct air flow. Yes, a doghouse may provide some shade; but because of no air flow, it will heat up quickly causing a possible worse scenario for your pet.
Watch for heatstroke - heavy panting, glazed eyes, rapid heartbeat, difficulty breathing, excessive thirst, lethargy, fever, dizziness, lack of coordination, profuse salivation, vomiting, deep red/purple tongue, seizure, and unconsciousness are all signs that your pet is in trouble! Seek medical attention for your pet!

How to treat a pet suffering from heatstroke

Move your pet into the shade or an air-conditioned area. Apply ice packs or cold towels to their head, neck & chest or run cool (NOT COLD) water over them. Let them drink small amounts of cool water or lick ice cubes and take them directly to a veterinarian.


During BBQs, make sure to keep your pets away from these items that are poisonous to them: alcohol, onion, avocado, garlic, xylitol, choclate, macadamia nuts, grapes/raisins, bones (especially chicken bones) and wooden skewers. 


Major repairs/additions planned for your home's exterior? Please contact JR's CMA manager, Dawn Allred, and her team at 972-943-2828 for instructions on how to proceed.
