Summer Safety with Speedy and the ASPCA + Give away!

With Summer weather finally here ,we were asked to join up with the ASPCA and do a post on Keeping your pets Safe.In the U.S they will soon be having July 4th celebrations plus July 1st is ID Your Pet Day and the ASPCA have this great Great Pet Safety App which will help to you pet safe and help you in an emergency should they go missing.

 Another thing pet owners need to be aware of is the hot temperatures that can affect your pets.With the heat comes many dangers like pets over heating….remember they have fur or feather coats that they can’t take off.So keep them cool by keeping them indoors during the hottest times of the day,switch on the Air conditioning or use fans and wrapped frozen bottles of water to use as cool packs for your pets,close your drapes as it helps to keep the suns heat out of the house and most of all keep plenty of fresh water down for them.

Another thing to avoid is hot pavements as these can burn the paws of your pets if its to hot for you to walk barefoot on then its too hot for your pets,when your walk your pets take with you cold fresh water so that they can stay hydrated and most important of all never leave your pet in a car the sun will boil them causing heatstroke….heatstroke KILLS!

And now for the fun bit the ASPCA have lined up an ID Your Pet Gift Pack for one Lucky Winner,all you do is leave a comment below and Me and Mum will video the live drawing of the winner.You have till Tuesday 27th June to leave your comment and then we will do the draw to pick the winner!Good luck Everyone!

  1. I agree with you… the pavement test is very important (ours was ready to roast eggs today) and we should look for shady placces for our walks…. I hope the heatwave is over soon… please gimme a sign when the furst rain clouds are on the way to us…

  2. Excellent tips Speedy. Our kitties are fairly safe from the things you mentioned. Shoko doesn’t seem to scared of thunderstorms except when they are right over head. I believe they take their cue from me. I’m not scared…except when the thunder is right over head.

    Thanks for the tips.

  3. Most awesome posting my little friend! Sometimes in the summer it’s so hard to remember everyone. This past week, mom had all of us anipals fitted for safety tethers in the jeep. We have to think safety of our babies always. And hey, mom doesn’t let me get around any BBQ’s. Can you imagine what would happen? Shivers with piggy fear. Have a great one! XOXO – Bacon

  4. Great tips Speedy 🙂

    My Persian Princess, Freja doesn’t go outside, but we always make sure she has access to our air conditionned bedroom and fresh water when we leave the apartment…

    Have a great summer 🙂 xx

  5. Very important tips Speedy. Thanks for sharing! Our little dog Sammy is afraid of thunderstorms and wind. We got him a storm or thunder coat. It keeps him snuggled up even when we can’t hold him.
