PET SAFETY TIPS DURING LAS VEGAS SUMMERS

Las Vegas (KTNV) — It's important to keep animals safe in the heat.

Las Vegas local Richard Piert keeps his furry companions safe from the heat by taking them to play before the sun becomes too relentless.

"They don't want to stay out here anyway, they're miserable," Piert says. "Although it's grass, very little concrete, it's too hot for them."

As our region soars over 100 degrees, it's easy for our pets to overheat and become ill.

Asphalt at 125 degrees can cause skin destruction in as little as 60 seconds. It only takes an outside temperatures of 77 degrees to bring asphalt to 125 degrees.

Experts say canines and felines can become dehydrated quickly, so you'll want to keep them replenished with fresh, clean water often.

Make sure pets have a shady place to get out of the sun and try not to over-exercise them.

It may be tempting to shave your dog's coat to help them cool off, but experts say it's not a good idea. Their coat protects them from sunburn and overheating.

Symptoms of overheating include excessive panting or drooling, increased heart rate, and weakness.

Dog owners may also consider keeping their dogs on the grass and purchasing dog shoes.

If your pet's body temperature reaches over 104 degrees, those symptoms elevate to vomiting, diarrhea, and seizures.
