Petliking Blog - Pet Health Month: Summer Care Essentials for Your Furry Friends

As the sun shines brighter and temperatures rise, it’s time to focus on the health and well-being of our pets. Summer can be a challenging season for our furry companions, requiring extra care and attention to keep them comfortable, healthy, and happy. In celebration of Pet Health Month, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide on summer pet care essentials, covering everything from skin care and pest control to hydration. Plus, we’ll highlight two must-have products: the Petfamily Pet Fountain Water and the Petfamily Intelligence Cyclone Deodorizer.


  1. Skin Care for Pets

Sun Protection

Just like humans, pets can suffer from sunburn, especially those with short or light-colored fur. Applying pet-safe sunscreen to exposed areas, such as the nose, ears, and belly, can protect them from harmful UV rays. Be sure to reapply as needed, particularly after your pet has been swimming or playing outside.

Regular Grooming

Regular grooming is crucial during the summer months. Brushing your pet helps remove loose fur and prevents matting, which can trap heat and cause skin irritation. For pets with long fur, consider a summer trim to keep them cool and comfortable.


Frequent baths help keep your pet’s skin clean and free from allergens. Use a gentle, pet-friendly shampoo to avoid drying out their skin. After a bath, make sure to dry them thoroughly to prevent skin infections, which can thrive in moist environments.


  1. Pest Control

Flea and Tick Prevention

Summer is peak season for fleas and ticks. These pests can cause serious health issues, from skin infections to Lyme disease. Use veterinarian-recommended flea and tick preventatives, and regularly check your pet’s fur and skin for signs of these parasites.

Mosquito Protection

Mosquitoes are not just a nuisance; they can transmit heartworms, which are dangerous for pets. Ensure your pet is on a heartworm preventive medication, and use pet-safe mosquito repellents to keep these pests at bay.

Regular Cleaning

Keeping your pet’s environment clean is key to pest control. Regularly wash their bedding, vacuum your home, and consider using pest control sprays or powders in areas where your pet spends a lot of time.



  1. Staying Hydrated

Access to Fresh Water

Hydration is crucial for pets, especially during the hot summer months. Ensure your pet has constant access to fresh, clean water to prevent dehydration and heatstroke.

Petfamily Pet Fountain Water

The Petfamily Pet Fountain Water is an excellent solution to keep your pet hydrated. This innovative product ensures a continuous flow of fresh water, encouraging pets to drink more. Its filtration system removes impurities, providing clean, safe water for your furry friend.

  1. Keeping Cool and Comfortable

Shaded Areas

Provide shaded areas for your pet to rest and cool down. Whether you’re at home or outdoors, ensure there’s always a cool, shaded spot available.

Cool Mats and Fans

Invest in cooling mats or fans designed for pets. These can help regulate their body temperature, making hot days more bearable.

Avoid Overexertion

Limit exercise during the hottest parts of the day. Opt for early morning or late evening walks when temperatures are cooler, and always carry water with you.


  1. Odor Control
