Tips for Pet Owners
Our pets are our best friends. They are our joy and we love playing with them. However, they require a lot of responsibility.
Oftentimes, we forget about the importance of maintaining the quality of our indoor air. Taking care of the heating and cooling unit after getting your best friend can improve the quality of life for you and your pet!
Dogs can naturally deal with hot or cold weather, so you shouldn’t worry too much about regulating the temperature. They can’t sweat through their skin and so they rely on panting and releasing heat through their paw pads and nose to regulate their body temperature and keep cool. Make sure your dog always has freshwater, food, and a cool place to relax. Also, pay attention to the length of the dog’s fur and when it’s time to shave. Even though the fur acts as insulation, it’s not a perfect one.
Cats usually take care of themselves and can deal with hot or cold temperatures. However, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care about the temperature of their surrounding. During the summer treat your cat with some ice treats, you can also wet a small towel in cold water and dab over your cat’s fur, to bring some relief from hot weather.
Even if our little flying friends are domesticated, they are often from tropical areas. That means that the birds are used to warmer temperatures and with that in mind, avoid putting your birdcage near AC vents. The cool temperatures from your air conditioning could negatively affect your bird’s health.
Here are some tips to ensure you and your four-legged(or two-legged) family members are comfortable in your home:
