Since we are in the dog days of summer, no pun intended, this is article is both timely and useful. Kim Grant shows us how to keep our best friends safe with some good advice.

With summer here, dog owners are taking their canine companions everywhere — parks, beaches, flea markets, outdoor restaurants, festivals, vacations, hiking and boating. Though it’s great to be outdoors, remember to protect your pet from the sun and heat.

Although most humans use sunscreen, a lot of us don’t realize how important it is for our pets too.

While bubblegum pink is the trendy color for canine couture this season, a pink nose, ears and belly can be painful. Yes pets can get sunburn just like humans.

For dogs, protect the nose and belly, which tend to turn bright pink from the sun, and other areas where fur is thin. Cats can benefit as well by applying to their nose and tips of ears. Talk with your veterinarian to find out which sunscreen is best for your pet.

Read all her great tips so you and your buddy will have a fun and safe summer.
