Some Tips and Pointers for Keeping Furry Friends Healthy & Happy
Long Island residents are itching to shed their layers of clothing in preperation of summer as it grows warmer and warmer each day. Forget the jackets, long sleeves, and pants! It's all about tank-tops, shorts, and flip-flops once June rolls around. Although this is a luxury that we can enjoy, our four legged friends aren't so lucky. While pets like cats and dogs literally do shed as the tempetures rise, they can't take off the entire coat of fur when they need to cool down. Overheating, or heat prostration, can be just as serious of a problem for animals as it is for people. We've put together a number of tips to help pet owners keep thier furry friends happy, healthy, and cool all summer long - check it out!
