How Humidity Affects Pets
Did you know that humidity is a bigger problem for Fido than it is for humans? Sure, we might feel hot and uncomfortable when there’s too much moisture in the air, but it can have some serious health effects on our pets. See below to find out why you need to keep humidity levels low this summer:
Cat person? Dog person? Somewhere in between? It doesn’t make a difference when it comes to protecting your pet. After all, we love our furry friends and want them to feel comfortable at all times. For this reason, it’s important to understand the effects humidity can have and how you can combat them to keep your pets healthy.
Why is humidity bad? Heat mixed with humidity make it difficult for pets to pant. This is how they cool themselves down by exchanging warm air in their lungs with cool air outside. What can you do to keep them cool? Running the air conditioner all day can be costly. However, just like humans, pets prefer to be in cooler settings.
You need to find a balance. We recommend keeping your thermostat between 72 and 80 degrees. This will help keep your pets cool while preventing the air conditioner from working too hard. The result? A happy pet, a healthier environment and some money left in your bank account.
Every home is unique and represents the dreams of the family that lives there. And yes, your pets are part of your family! It’s a place where memories are made and lives are shared. Your home provides comfort and a place of safety.
