Splish-Splash! Saltwater Safety Tips for a Pawesome Summer!

Ah, summertime! The sun is shining, the waves are calling, and it's time to hit the beach or the lakeside with your pup. But before your dog dives into that saltwater paradise, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure a safe swimming experience. So, grab your sunscreen, put on your shades, and let's dive into our playful guide to saltwater safety for your furry companion!

Catch Some Waves, Not Salt

While your pup may be tempted to gulp down the salty waves like a four-legged surfer, remind them that moderation is key! Drinking too much salt water can make their tummy feel like it's doing the flip-flops. If so, make sure they get a lot of fresh water to hydrate and rebalance their hydration levels.

Rehydration Remedy

If your pup is having a hard time with vomit and dehydrates a lot, consider offering your pup some electrolyte solutions specially formulated for dogs. These can help restore the electrolyte balance in their body, which may have been disrupted by excessive salt intake. Check with your vet for suitable canine electrolyte products and follow the recommended dosage.

No Salty Surprise for the Eyes & Skin

Saltwater may give your dog a mermaid-like shimmer, but it can also be a bit harsh on their precious peepers and skin. Remember to rinse them off with freshwater after swimming to wash away the salty remnants. After all, they're going for the "beach babe" look, not the "salty sailor" vibe! You can combine the rinse with a sensitive dog shampoo and have your doggy smelling and feeling fresh after your beach fun! 

Ear This!

Dogs that swim frequently are more prone to ear infections. After swimming, dry your dog's ears thoroughly or use an approved ear-cleaning solution to help prevent infections. If you notice any signs of discomfort, redness, or odor in your dog's ears, talk to your vet. Better to prevent than treat.

Friendly Fishies, Not So Friendly

While your pup may be the most adorable thing on the beach, some marine critters might not be as welcoming. Watch out for those sneaky jellyfish and prickly sea urchins – they can give your dog an unpleasant surprise! Be aware of the marine life and make sure your dog avoids any encounters that might ruin a great day on the beach!

So, there you have it! A quick guide to keeping your dog safe and happy during their saltwater adventures. Remember, it's all about having a splashing good time while taking care of your furry friend. Now, grab that frisbee, pack some doggy sunscreen, and get ready for a summer full of awesome memories!
