Don’t forget about your pets these doggone summer days.  They are even extremely vulnerable to the heat.Dogs and cats only sweat through areas where they don’t have fur, like their nose or their paws, so they can’t sweat as much as we can.When it’s really hot out, it’s best to bring them inside until it cools down.Make sure outdoor pets have easy access to shade and plenty of water.  Take them to a dog park with a sprinkler system or fill a small kiddie pool with water.Never leave your pets in the car.
