Keep it hydrated
Always remember that a pet needs fresh water for metabolism. Therefore, as you head for the beach, carry with you a bottle of water and a vessel for the pet to lap the water from. With the high temperatures culminating the atmosphere, your pet will probably lose more water which is why it is deemed better to frequently give it water to hydrate the body.
Just like humans, pets tend to get sunburns when exposed to too much heat. You wouldn’t want that on your lovely pet, would you? So, protect your pet on the beach by adding a sunscreen on your packing list. How on earth would a pet get sunburns yet most are fur covered? Some parts like nose, mouth, ears are highly susceptible to the harmful rays.
Some pets are naturally good swimmers. However, that should not make you neglect a dog in water. Sometimes a dog might get exhausted while wading through water. For that reason, get it a floating jacket to keep the pet afloat. Calm waters are the best waters for pets to swim in. Surging water will prove it difficult for pets to float and might even drown in it.
While in water, ensure the pet does not take in any salty water as it will cause harm to the body. The pet will vomit; have a diarrhea since the components in the salty water are incompatible with its body. Sometimes, the water might have harmful bacteria which when it gains access to the body through the fluid will cause a disease to the pet like liver infections and other complications.
Keep it away from loud noise
During such times: fireworks and loud music might be the leading cause of panic in your pet. In such situations, it might let loose and wander off to dangerous places where it might get stolen or run over by a moving vehicle. To protect your pet on the beach in cases like this; don’t let it out of your sight. If possible, tie its neck.
Pets have tender paws. As they run along the sandy shores, something fatal might be underlying in the sand: glass shafts, sharp sandstones, needles and many more. To avert this, buy it some protection equipment for the legs. The hot summers might make the sand unbearable to stride on with bare feet; same applies to the pet’s paws.
Protect your pet while on the beach by observing all the above. Another thing is to deworm your dog before such an expedition so that in case it ingests any lying food it won’t cause any harm to it. With all that in mind; buckle up for an unforgettable experience with your cuddle buddy.
While on the beach remember to wear sun protective clothing, this will provide your skin with UV protection around the clock, and keep applying sunscreen every two hours on exposed skin such as your face, hands and feet.
