Cage Dryers Can Be Dangerous

Here is a tip worth checking out courtesy of Veterinary Medicine. We all know that heat stroke is a danger in the summer months to dogs and the caveat about leaving an animal in a parked care for even one minute. But cage dryers can present another threat to dogs susceptible to heat stroke.

Dogs and cats most at risk from dryer induced heat stroke include any that are already overheated from being in distress as well as those who are overweight, have breathing problems, heart problems and are very young or very old. Pets being dried by cage dryers should also have access to fresh water.

It is worth asking your groomer about the method of drying he/she uses for your dog, especially if your dog is at risk.
