As tradewinds sputter down and the days heat up, Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital wants pet owners to be informed and prepared.
- Walk pets early in the morning or later in the afternoon to protect their paws from hot surfaces.
- When walking your pets in the day, keep it short, and be sure to stick to shady or grassy areas.
- Pets should always have access to shade, ventilation, and water.
- Never leave pets unattended in a car, even with the windows cracked.
