As we all know, Santa Clarita has been experiencing an extreme heat wave over the past couple weeks and more to come. Therefore, it is very important to be aware of several factors that may impact your pet’s health in the heat. Some of the problems we deal with every day include heatstroke, snakebites, burned paw pads, lost or injured dogs during fireworks, and insect bites (fleas, bees, mosquitos, and ticks).

A recent case I saw and an article in the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association’s journal reminded me that rabies still exist, and we should always be aware especially in cases with suspicious neurological symptoms. Dog owners generally keep their pets updated, but some cat owners, especially “indoor-only cat” owners sometimes don’t vaccinate their pets against rabies. State and County Veterinarians who work in the Public Health Departments recommend that all cats be vaccinated for rabies, including indoor-only cats.
