Exercise is healthy. A nice walk before a meal will ensure that afterwards, your dog will relax and snooze. However, on very hot days, limit exercise excursions to either early morning or early evening to avoid the punishing heat of the middle of the day. Be sure to take water with you – even on a short walk.
If your cat loves to drink water from a running tap, consider getting a drinking fountain for her. Cats in the wild drink running water and a pet drinking fountain recreates this in the home.
