Keep Your Pets Safe in the Joint Base Charleston Area

  • Keep Animals Cool - Animals can become dehydrated quickly, so it is imperative to provide them with plenty of water when it is hot outdoors. Pets should also have a shady place to escape the sun if outside and they should never linger on hot asphalt during periods of extreme heat. This can cause an animal to heat up quickly, and sensitive paw pads can burn.
  • Spot The Symptoms - Signs of overheating in pets include increased heart rate, excessive drooling and panting, difficulty breathing, weakness, elevated body temperature (over 104 degrees), and even seizures. Even if swimming, a dog can easily get sick in the heat.
  • The Young and The Old - Both are at the highest risk for heat illnesses. Be careful with older pets and with puppies and kittens, by limiting their time outdoors.
