Dangers to Arizona Pets

The Heat - Please remember the Climate effects pets and they need to adjust to the heat, just like humans. Many pets have died from exposure to the intense heat. If you just follow some common sense rules, everyone will be happier for it:

  • Always make sure your pet has a good supply of water and shade when left outside, even if your only going to be gone 5 minutes. That quick run to the convenience store could mean disaster for your pet if you get stuck in traffic or stopped by one of our friendly law enforcement officers.
  • Never leave your pet locked in a parked car. Even when the outside temperature is pleasant to us, the temperature inside the car can reach levels capable of killing your pet in a matter of minutes. Most people in Arizona will break into cars (especially law enforcement) if they believe a pet is in trouble. I believe there is a law on this also.

Valley Fever- Pets, like humans, are susceptible to Valley Fever, for which there is no vaccine. Most pets exposed to valley fever never develop symptoms, but if extreme fever or fatigue occurs, seek medical help.

Bugs- Because of the possibility of flea and tick infestations, please keep an eye on your pet. If it does develop a problem, consult your local pet store or veterinarian for help.

Escape- When your pet escapes/runs off from its home, the he/she can become frightened, lost, hungry or hurt. ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR LOVED ONE. If they do get lost, REPORT IT. If you need additional tips, check out our Finding your lost pet page.
