Summertime pet safety is an important issue during the dog days of summer. When the temperature outside reaches 100 degrees it can have a real effect on your beloved cat or dog.
A dog or cat can’t take off their shirt and wear boxer shorts around the house to cool off like dad. Some dogs and cats have a big shaggy coat that keeps them warm in the winter but come summertime, that fur coat can’t be shed. The furrier the dog or cat, the hotter they’re gonna get.
So, should you leave the air conditioner on for your pet when you’re gone or at work? Most pet owners and veterinarians say “yes” you should leave your air conditioner on for your pet. It gives your dog or cat a sense of relief. Can Air Conditioners Make Your Cat or Dog Sick? Unfortunately, there is no magic number for an AC setting that will provide the ideal temperature for your cat or dog. If your air conditioning settings are too cold for your pet than yes, it can make them sick.
Can a puppy sleep in the ac room? Yes, puppies can and sometimes should sleep in AC room. Just as puppies have a harder time with very cold or very hot temperatures, little breed dogs like rat terries, Chihuahuas, and Shih Tzus need extra kindness when it comes to the temperature of their habitat. Make sure your puppy has a nice and cosy place to sleep. If you find your pup is shivering or curled tightly around herself, try providing a blanket for her. Try to keep her bed away from the direction of the air flow so it’s not blowing right on her.
