This heatwave that has been hitting the USA is not only affecting us but our pets too! I found this nifty gadget at Wal-Mart.com to help your dog beat the heat! It is a cooling pet pad that you submerge in cool water for 1-2 minutes and then it provides hours of heat relief. They come in stardard crate sizes so it is easy to accomodate those pets who are confined during the daytime as well. This is just one option, there are may other models and styles of these types of products, even a cooling vest. Don't let your pet suffer this summer...keep 'em cool!
