Pssst. Can I talk to you over here? I have some things I want to tell you to help me be happy these coming months!
It’s going to be a hot summer here in Arizona. But I love living here! There are some things you can do to help me be healthy and strong during these high temperature months.
When it gets really hot I need more nutrition to be able to keep myself cool. But I can’t eat as much because no one wants to eat in the heat! Maybe it would be a good idea to feed me more frequently? How about three meals a day instead of two?
Most important is for me to have fresh, clean water available to me. I usually drink around six to twelve quarts of water during the hot times! If I have scours I might need as much as twenty quarts a day! If you give me lots of fresh water, I’ll eat more starter grain for you. I like the grain, but it’s hard to eat in the summer without water as well.
Sunny days are nice, but not all day! I like being in the shade as well as you do! You wouldn’t leave your dog in a hot car! Please give me a place with shade that has lots of fresh air available. My young lungs need this fresh air to be strong and healthy. It might be worthwhile to put a fan near me to help cool me down.
If you have any questions on how to help me be healthy and happy during these hot months, please talk to your veterinarian. They will love to help you with all your questions!
