Once you feel thirsty, you are probably already dehydrated, so drink plenty of water throughout the day.  Try to avoid alcoholic beverages and sugary drinks such as sodas and juices as it can make dehydration worse. 

For pet owners, remember that your pets also need to stay hydrated so ensure your pets have plenty of water throughout the day. 

Remember to Bring Your Pets Indoors

To prevent your pet from overheating, take these simple precautions provided by ASPCA experts:

  • Pets can get dehydrated quickly, so give them plenty of fresh, clean water when it’s hot or humid.
  • Know the symptoms of an overheating pet such as panting, difficulty breathing, drooling, or increased heart rate.
  • Animals with flat faces, like Pugs and Persian cats, are more susceptible to heatstroke since they cannot pant as effectively
  • Never leave your animals alone in a parked vehicle.
