Summer Time is soon upon us!

 

For most seasoned Minnesotans, getting outside this summer after the long winter is the first thing on their mind.  However, it’s important to make sure to think of your skin when you do so.  Sunscreen application is an affordable solution to preventing easily obtained skin damage.  According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), how you use this product, and what other protective measures you take, will make a significant difference in how well you protect yourself and your family from sunburn, skin cancer, early skin aging and other risks of overexposure to the sun.  Please view these Sun Safety Tips for more information on how to stay safe this summer.

Summer Pet Safety

Summer heat can affect your pet, just as much as you.

According to the Pet Health Network, “there are some important things to think about when it comes to your pets. Warm weather can be dangerous for our pets. It’s hard for pets to keep cool when the sun is beating down, and that’s because animals don’t sweat like people do. You probably knew that dogs cool themselves through panting, but did you know that they sweat through their paws too? When there is only hot air for a dog to breathe, it’s a lot harder for that dog to keep cool.

While cats tend to tolerate the heat a little better than dogs, and even prefer it (we’ve all seen a cat stretched out on a sunny windowsill), that doesn’t mean that you should forget about your cat this summer.”
