Pets also need your help staying cool.

When you think it’s too hot outside, your pets are probably thinking the same thing.

That’s why on days like today, it’s probably best to keep your pets indoors.

If you do need to take them outside, make sure they stay hydrated and aren’t in the sun for too long.

“Never leave your dog or cat in a car,” said Bridget Domenighini, director of PCAPS. “It gets extremely hot, very quickly. So, again, treat your pets how you would want to be treated if it’s extremely hot out.”

If you are on a walk with your pet, also avoid going on the pavement.

It can cause some irritation on the paws, leading to infection.
