AC Repair in Bossier City, LA: Efficient Cooling to Protect Your Pets

Leave a comment

Louisiana temperatures have been scorching all throughout this summer, as they usually are during the season. While residents take measures to shield themselves from the heat, some neglect to give the same protection to their pets.

Unlike humans, animals sweat only around their paws, which does not do much by way of cooling them. Veterinary experts say that, instead of sweating, animals pant and use convection to cool themselves, exchanging the hot air from inside their bodies for the cool air outside. When the surrounding air is hot and humid, animals cannot get the cooling they need. This can lead to heatstroke, which, in some cases, could be fatal.
