As a Dog Mom, it is my responsibility to share the following post from the Santa Clara County Office of Public Affairs.  Heat is dangerous, especially when it comes so our furry friends.  Below is the graphic and note posted on Nextdoor earlier this week.  Be safe out there!


Dear Neighbors,

While you’re trying to beat the heat, don’t forget about your furry friends! Please remember to protect your pets from the high temperatures.


Here are a few safety reminders for your pets during this prolonged heatwave:
  • Asphalt gets VERY HOT during the day, which can burn your pet’s paw pads. Test sidewalks with your hand. If it’s too hot for your hand, it’s probably too hot for your pet.
  • Pets can get dehydrated quickly. Always carry fresh, clean water to keep your pet from dehydrating when it’s hot and/or humid outside!
  • Use caution when exercising your pet in the heat. Make sure your pets have a shady place to get out of the sun and do not over-exercise them. Adjust exercise intensity/duration and limit exercise to early morning or evening.
  • Never leave your pets in a parked car!
Stay safe and be well,
County of Santa Clara
