Vacation is planned months in advance. You wait in anticipation for that week away. When the time comes near, you stress about what to do with your pets.


Leaving your beloved pets behind weighs on your mind.  You feel nervous about them being alone and if they will be properly cared for.

@1 Reason to hire a pet sitter: pets stay home


Hiring a professional pet sitter from Best in Pet Services provides you peace of mind while your pet enjoys the comforts of home. 


Here are some reasons your pet would prefer to stay at home.


Your pet becomes anxious with changes to routine or environment.


Most pets prefer a familiar routine and environment.  They know when it’s time to eat, sleep, wake up.


When pets are taken out of their home their daily routine is disrupted.  Their surroundings are unfamiliar. This can cause stress and anxiety for some pets. 


Traveling is difficult or stressful for your pet


Senior pets have a difficult time traveling. Often times it is hard for elderly pets  to get in and out of a car. 


Cats especially hate to travel and become very stressed when crated to be transported.  Not only can traveling be stressful for your pet, it is also and inconvenience for you.


Being around other pets and people makes your pet nervous


Not all pets are well socialized. When they are placed with other pets, people, or situations that are unfamiliar, your pet will suffer anxiety and be fearful.


This stress can cause unwanted behavior or health issues with your pet.  A professional pet sitter from Best in Pet Services will provide your pet with individual attention and that will be at ease in their own surroundings.

Signs Of Heat Stroke In Dogs

The long days of summer are a great time to be outdoors with your favorite canine companion. As the temperatures start to climb, it is important to remember that your dog can suffer from the effects of the heat.

Dogs have a higher body temperature than we do.  When exposed to high temperatures, dogs have to pant to try to regulate their body temperature. They are unable to sweat through the skin like people and are limited to sweating through their nose and paw pads.  This is not enough to help cool the dog down on extremely hot days.

Damage or death can occur in minutes of a dog succumbing to heat stroke.  Prevent this from happening to your dog by recognizing the signs of heat stroke in dogs.

Signs of Heat Stroke in Dogs

Signs of heat stroke in dogs

  • Restlessness and agitation
  • Whining or barking for no reason
  • Heavy, excessive  panting
  • Difficult, labored  breathing
  • Foaming, frothy mouth
  • Excessive thirst
  • Excessive drooling
  • Glazed eyes
  • Disorientation and confusion
  • Vomiting
  • Bloody diarrhea
  • Bright or dark red tongue, gums
  • Staggering
  • Elevated body temperature
  • Weakness, collapse
  • Increased heart rate
  • Lethargy
  • Seizures
  • Unconsciousness
  • Death

If your dog is displaying any of these signs, you must act immediately.

  • Move your dog to the shade or inside.
  • Assess your dog’s condition. Is your dog conscious and standing, offer small drinks of cool water.  If your dog is unconscious and not able to stand, immediate veterinarian care is needed.
  • Contact your veterinarian or have someone call for you.
  • Cool down your dog by soaking him in cool water.  Do not use ice cold water.  Start the cooling process by using a hose or wet towels starting at the head, neck, and under the legs.
  • Get your dog to the veterinarian right away so they can monitor your dog and provide additional care.

By the time you recognize the signs of heat stroke in dogs, it could be too late.  Take precautions to keep your dog from over heating this summer.

How will you and your dog keep cool during the dog days of summer?
