According to a recent report from Indiana television station WNDU, there are a number of steps people can take to make sure pets on the farm don't suffer from the hotter summer months. The most basic concern is making sure the animals have plenty of shade and water.
"If an animal is breathing heavy or staggering around, it's important to cool down the animal with a bath starting at the ribs and working down the legs," the television station said.
Summer may also be a time for people to showcase their pets during shows and fairs, and doing so may require additional precautions. That may include extra baths and allowing the animals time to cool down after competing.
Once animals are cared for, farmers should make sure they are taking their own precautions for their health. To avoid sun damage, people in the fields should clothes that cover them properly while also masking any exposed areas with sun block.
