Keeping pets cool in the heat

If you have big pets or small it's important to keep them safe and cool when it's hot outside.

We spoke with Jane Holt President of Paw Pals in Quincy about what pet owners can do in this Safe Family report.

She recommends your pets have cool, clean water every day.

Tie down the water dish so they don't tip it over.

Make sure they have plenty of shade because pets can get sunburn just like people can.

For long hair pets you can get it shaved, that will also help with fleas.

Holt said you can fill up a kids size swimming pool with water so they can lay in the water and cool off.
