TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Spring and Summer Dog Care Tips - More than just not leaving your dog in a hot car!
  1. Dogs Can Get Sunburned - It comes as a surprise to many dog owners that Fido can actually get sunburned, particularly if he has a light-colored nose or fur. Pick up dog-approved sunscreen from the pet store and follow the directions on the bottle when applying.
  1. Beware of Poisonous Plants - Evaluate the area your dog is permitted to play in outside. Take care to remove any poisonous plants or vegetation, including Azalea, Lily of the Valley, and mushrooms, to name a few.
  1. Bring Water To The Lake - Standing lake water is a ton of fun for your dog to play in, but bring a water bowl and a bottle of water for when your dog gets thirsty. Standing water can have bacteria or other dangerous particles in it, leading to digestive issues for your dog.
