Keeping Pets Safe Around Water

As temperatures rise, so does your pet's risk of water-related injuries including the very real danger of pet drowning, with near-drownings costing an average of $409 to treat.

At the pool, beach or lake -

Protect your pet around the family pool by teaching him how to find the stairs in case he falls in or gets into trouble while swimming. If you're going to the beach or lake, consider learning CPR and buying him a pet life jacket.

If trouble happens, take action -

Sometimes despite all your precautions, your pet can inhale water or experience a near-drowning. If that occurs, keep him warm and dry—and take him to the veterinarian immediately.
