Tips on how to prepare your dog, cat, horse or other pet for hurricane season and evacuation!
Living in Florida makes it hard to drive with your pet with the windows down in the summer time. Make sure you point the A/C towards your pet so it doesn't get car sick. Please remember that if you are going to run errands, that it is cruel to leave your pet in a hot car and sometimes even fatal. It doesn't take long for the heat of your car to be dangerous. It is better to leave your dog at home and only take your pet for a drive if you don't have to leave the car, like at the bus stop when picking up the kids. May you and your pet have a healthy, happy summer!
