Is It Ever Too Hot to Take Your Dog for a Walk?

Taking your dog for regular walks is important. Not only does it help keep your dog in good shape, it’s also good for his mental well-being to get a little fresh air every day. What if it’s really hot? Can you take your dog for a walk, or should you stay at home?

You should still plan to go for a walk, but your walk is going to look different. To keep your dog from overheating, you should plan a few short walks. In the early morning and evening is best because the temperature will be lower.

Make sure you bring along water and take breaks in the shade. If the cement is hot, plan to walk on a nature trail or let your dog walk through the grass.

If you worry that your dog is overheating, you should talk to your veterinarian Indianapolis, IN right away.
