Temperatures are soaring today! Be sure to take extra care of your pets in these conditions - they'll thank you for it! Never leave your pet in an unattended car (even with the windows down), and make sure they are well hydrated and cool. Be on the lookout for signs of heat stroke such as excessive panting, lethargy, vomiting and diminished appetite. If you see these signs please contact your veterinarian. Learn more about heat safety for pets here: https://www.mspca.org/angell_services/heat-safety-tips/ As always, Angell Animal Medical Center (617 522-7282) is open 24×7 if your pet is in need of immediate medical care.

    Heat Safety Tips - MSPCA-Angell
    Nothing kills more pets during the summer months than heat stroke. Animals are very sensitive to high temperatures, which means it's critically important to monitor pets and provide them with plenty of shade and water.
