Our pets love summer just as much as we do! For many, it’s the best time of year to be out, about, and enjoying all that the season has to offer.
While there is certainly nothing wrong with taking your pet out for picnics, hikes, swimming, or running, keep in mind that warm weather can be dangerous. Read below to learn some important summer safety tips for dogs:
1. Never, ever, EVER leave your dog in a hot car
2. Make sure your dog is protected from parasites like fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes
3. Keep your dog's paws cool
4. Your dog should always have access to fresh drinking water and shade
5. Give your dog his very own "kiddy pool”
6. Don’t assume your dog can swim well
7. Dogs get sunburns too!
8. If there’s no fence, keep your dog on a leash
9. Watch your dog’s weight
10. Keep your windows screened!
Perhaps the most important tip is to pay attention to your dog – you’ll know when he seems uncomfortable. Summer can be a great time to spend with your dog, but it’s important to keep these tips in mind!

Before and after of a dental performed at MGAH on a 10yr old Labrador
What is entailed in a full dental?
~Sonic scaling that removes the glued on tarter that will not otherwise come off.
~ Probing along the gums to detect early problem areas (gum recession, gingivitis) and evaluate level of decay.
~Extractions are only performed if fracture or gum recession prevents the teeth from being salvaged.
~And remember, age is NOT a disease. Granted there are risks with any anesthetic procedure (animals and humans alike), but with comprehensive blood-work evaluating internal organ function, and anesthetic monitoring during anesthesia (blood pressure, ECG, temperature, pulse OX), our older healthy pets have the same risks as our younger pets.
