8 Things You Can Do to Protect Your Dog in the Summer

Public Affairs Commissioner John Montillo & the Lyndhurst Health Department Present: 8 Things You Can Do to Protect Your Dog in the Summer

1. Never, ever leave your dog in the car;


2. Make sure your dog has unlimited access to fresh water;


3. Make sure your dog has access to shade when outside;


4. Take walks during the cooler hours of the day;


5. When walking, try to stay off of hot surfaces (like asphalt) because it can burn your dog's paws;


6. If you think it's hot outside, it's even hotter for your pet – make sure your pet has a means of cooling off;


7. Keep your dog free of external parasites (fleas, ticks) and heartworms – consult your veterinarian about the best product for your pet;


8. Consider clipping or shaving dogs with long coats (talk to your veterinarian first to see if it's appropriate for your pet), and apply sunscreen to your dog's skin if she or he has a thin coat

Public Affairs Commissioner John Montillo & Lyndhurst Health Department's Tips for Portable Swimming Pool Safety

 

Public Affairs Commissioner John Montillo and the Lyndhurst Health Department Present:
Portable Swimming Pool Safety - Above Ground, Inflatable, and Kiddie Swimming Pool Safety

Portable pools - those with the inflatable top ring, or smaller, inflatable pools, have caught the attention of legislators recently. Previously outside of regulations for pool safety, New York and Tennessee, for example, have drafted new laws to require fencing and/or pool alarms to be used when these pools are filled.

Portable pools are quick and easy to purchase and set up - so quick in fact, that little thought is given to their safety. Here's some tips to increase pool safety for portable pools.
