Let's work together to keep Devon pets safe and comfortable in the heat

As we (finally!) head into some hot weather this summer it's important to keep our pets safe. Here are some top tips from our community peace officers to keep in mind:

  • Watch for possible signs of heat exhaustion or stroke (heavy panting,  glassy eyes, unsteady walk, lethargy, high body temperature, vomiting).
  • Limit outdoor time or have adequate outdoor shelter from the sun
  • Always maintain adequate food / fresh water
  • Do not leave your pet in a hot vehicle
  • Remember that paws will be sensitive to hot roadways/sidewalks
  • Have an emergency pet kit ready to go (food/water/first aid)
  • Always consult your veterinarian if you feel unsure of how your pet is doing

An animal in distress is an emergency. If you observe an animal in distress, you can contact the Town Peace Officers at 780-987-8300 or the afterhours emergency line at 1-825-316-2008. The Town also works with the Alberta SPCA who can be contacted at 1-800-455-9003.

Thank you for keeping our Devon pets safe!
