ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

With temperatures expected to be above 95 degrees the next couple of days here are some tips and places you might need to know to keep your cool.

Stay hydrated

Drink plenty of water. Have a beverage with you at all times, and sip or drink frequently. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink.

Avoid drinks with caffeine, alcohol and large amounts of sugar because they can actually de-hydrate your body.
Protect your pets

Pets are especially vulnerable in high heat and the Seattle Animal Shelter recommends the following:

Never leave your animal chained or penned up directly in sunlight. Provide a shady area for retreat, such as a dog house, porch or shady tree, and always provide cool water.

If you leave animals indoors, open screened windows, keep a fan running, provide plenty of water, and if possible, leave them in a cool location.

Never leave dogs or cats unattended in a closed, locked car. Animals do not perspire like humans; they cool themselves by panting and seats in vehicles get hot under animals’ feet and prevent them from perspiring through their paws.
