Hot Weather Alert

The temperatures this weekend and into next week are expected to soar, with the coast hitting 80º, the inland valleys and mountains 100º and the desert areas around 120º.

It’s Hot For Your Pets, Too!

Never leave your pet unattended in a parked car, not even for a few minutes!

Be alert to the signs of heat stress, which, in dogs, includes panting and excessive drooling. If your pet has become overheated take the following steps immediately:

  • Move your pet into the shade and apply cool, not cold, water all over its body to gradually lower its body temperature.
  • Apply ice packs or cold towels only to your pet’s head, neck and chest.
  • Let your pet drink small amounts of cool water or lick ice cubes.
  • Take your pet directly to a veterinarian; it could save your pet’s life.
