Keep your pet cool!
Keep your pet cool! Heat can kill. As the temperature climbs, consider your pet’s perspective. Symptoms of overheating, sometimes called heatstroke or heat exhaustion, include lethargy, excessive panting and salivation, difficulty breathing, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, and collapse, says Amy Schein, DVM, a veterinarian with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in New York.
If you suspect your pet has heatstroke, wet it with water from a hose, put it in a cool - not cold - water, or wrap it in a wet towel. Call your veterinarian immediately; heatstroke requires veterinary care.
Follow these tips to keep your pet cool and safe this summer.

- Leave your pet home when you run errands. Even with the windows down, your car quickly can turn into an oven.

Pets in our National Forests
Pets in our National Forests After our article last month on pets in our National Parks, we received many questions on rules concerning pets in the National Forests.
National Forests are managed by the USDA Forest Service.  Regulations for national forests come from the Code of Federal Regulations. In short, pets must be on leash or otherwise physically restrained at all times.  However, the practicalities of the national forests are that they tend to be much more pet friendly than the national parks.
Here, though, are the actual rules:

Sec. 2.15  Pets.

(a) The following are prohibited: 
(1) Possessing a pet in a public building, public transportation  vehicle, or location designated as a swimming beach, or any structure or  area closed to the possession of pets by the superintendent. This  subparagraph shall not apply to guide dogs accompanying visually impaired persons or hearing  ear dogs accompanying hearing-impaired persons.
