When temperatures reach 100 it's tough on people and their pets.
The "dog days" of summer aren't necessarily the best for dogs.
If you have pets, experts say you need to protect them from the heat as well.
First, never leave an animal in a vehicle alone on hot day... even with the windows rolled down.
Always provide pets with enough shade.
Also, keep your small animals indoors during the hottest periods of the day.
Jerry Dominicak of the Siouxland Humane Society said, "If your dogs going to be outside all day, you can't rely on just putting out a pan or pal full of water in the morning. You should check that throughout the day and you should give them fresh, cool water."
Other things to keep in mind animals can knock a water dish over so check on it often.
And never force your pet to exercise in hot weather.
