Summer Pet Safety

Don’t Forget the Water!

by Claire H. on June 15, 2017

When packing the car for a fun day at the beach we always remember to pack drinks and refreshment for all the humans… do you remember to pack fresh water for your dog, too? Just as we don’t want to drink the water from a lake (or ocean) it isn’t a good idea for dogs to either. Lake water can contain algae that can be harmful to dogs when ingested, and the salt content of saltwater can cause salt poisoning if too much is ingested. It can take as little as a few swallows of contaminated lake water to make a dog sick if the wrong algae is present.
