Summer Pet Safety Tips When Using Curbside Services

As we continue to serve our pet-loving community during this difficult time, our Pet Health Centers are continuing with curbside service at both the Alex Lewyt Medical Center and the Don and Karen LaRocca Wellness Center.

As always, the health of your pet is our greatest concern. With temperatures spiking in these hot summer months we would like to offer these helpful tips to help keep cool while using our curbside services.

  • Before leaving your home, remember to bring water and a bowl for your pet, as well as water for yourself. If you run out, let us know.
  • Remain in your vehicle with the air conditioning on and the windows rolled up. If you do not have air conditioning in your car, please let us know when you arrive and we will house your pet until we are ready to see them.
  • Refrain from walking your pet around campus due to the extreme heat. Pets can easily over-heat in the summer and the asphalt is very hot on their little paws! If you think they need to relieve themselves, try to find a shady spot to walk them and then return to your car.
  • Never leave your pet in the car unattended.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate through these ever-changing times. It is our pleasure to serve you and your fur babies!
