Top 10 tips to keep pets safe in the heat

Summer is upon us, and with our abnormally hot weather, our pets need constant attention. As the temperature climbs, remember our pets are wearing a fur coat every day. They can’t tell us they’re hot or thirsty; we need to be advocates for them.

There are many ways to make our planet cleaner. I invite you to bring your dog and join me at the Walk for Water at Minnehaha Park Minneapolis this Earth day. Our pet area at Byerly’s Ridgedale will sponsor an eco-themed canine prize package, which you can enter to win when you and your dog pledge to help keep water cleaner.

I have a New Year’s challenge to you as a pet parent: consider what you feed the animal member of your family. Do you feed them organic, natural, well-balanced, or holistic? Do you know where their pet food comes from?

My job as a pet specialist is to help think about this for you and take the wonders, questions or worries out of your decision. Stop in and I can help educate you on pet foods and products, as well as give you some ideas of what your pet might thrive on.

Greetings fellow animal lovers! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. It probably goes without saying, but I have a passion for pets and pet care.

My husband and I have two four-legged kids. Their names are Akina and Diesel. They are both German Shepherds who really complete our family. They have the hard job of testing new pet products I find.

I visit pet stores like some girls would go to the shoe store – shopping for our pets and those of family and friends. It brings me great joy as I love learning about what is new when it comes to pet care.
