Keep Your Cool and Prevent Heat Illness Our bodies create a tremendous amount of heat. Normally, they’re cooled through sweating and by heat radiating through the skin. But in very hot weather, high humidity, and other conditions, this natural cooling system may begin to fail, letting heat in the body build to dangerous levels. This can cause heat illness, such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion, or heatstroke. Heat Cramps Heat cramps are brief, painful muscle cramps in the legs, arms, or abdomen that may occur during or after vigorous exercise in extreme heat. The sweating that occurs with intense physical activity causes the body to lose salts and fluids. This low level of salts causes the muscles to cramp. Kids are particularly at risk for heat cramps when they aren’t drinking enough fluids. Although painful, heat cramps on their own aren’t serious. But cramps can be the first sign of more serious heat illness, so they should be treated right away to help avoid any problems.

Heat Exhaustion Heat exhaustion is a more severe heat illness that can occur when someone in a hot climate or environment hasn’t been drinking enough fluids. Symptoms can include: increased thirst, weakness, fainting, muscle cramps, nausea and/or vomiting, irritability, headache, increase sweating, cool, clammy skin and elevation of body temperature, but less than 104°F (40°C). What to Do: • Bring your child to a cooler place indoors, an air-conditioned car, or shady area. • Remove your child’s excess clothing. • Encourage your child to drink cool fluids containing salt/sugar, such as sports drinks. • Put a cool, wet cloth or cool water on your child’s skin. • Call your doctor for advice. If your child is too exhausted or ill to drink, treatment with intravenous (IV) fluids may be necessary. • If left untreated, heat exhaustion can develop into heatstroke, which can be fatal.

Heatstroke The most severe form of heat illness is What to Do: heatstroke. Heatstroke is a life-threatening A cool place, rest, and fluids should ease a medical emergency. In heatstroke, the body child’s discomfort. If possible, give fluids that cannot regulate its own temperature. Body contain salt and sugar, such as sports drinks. temperature can soar to 106°F (41.1°C) or Gently stretching and massaging cramped even higher, leading to brain damage or muscles also may help. even death if it isn’t quickly treated.

medical treatment is required to bring the body temperature under control. Factors that increase the risk for heatstroke include overdressing and extreme physical activity in hot weather with inadequate fluid intake. Heatstroke also can happen when a child is left in, or becomes accidentally trapped in, a car on a hot day. When the outside temperature is 93°F (33.9°C), the temperature inside a car can reach 125°F (51.7°C) in just 20 minutes, quickly raising body temperature to dangerous levels. What to Do: Call for emergency medical help if your child has been outside in extreme temperatures or another hot environment and shows one or more of these symptoms of heatstroke: severe headache, weakness, dizziness, confusion, nausea, rapid breathing and heartbeat, loss of consciousness, seizure, no sweating, flushed, hot, dry skin, temperature of 104°F (40°C) or higher While waiting for help: • Get your child indoors or into the shade. • Undress your child and sponge or douse him or her with cool water. • Do not give fluids unless your child is awake, alert, and acting normally. An Ounce of Prevention To help protect kids from heat illness: • Teach kids to always drink plenty of fluids before and during activity in hot, sunny weather — even if they’re not thirsty. • Make sure kids wear light-colored, loose clothing and use sunscreen when outdoors. • On hot or humid days, make sure your kids only participate in heavy activity outdoors before noon and after 6 p.m. • Teach kids to come indoors, rest, and hydrate immediately whenever they feel overheated. © 1995-2019 .

7 Pet Safety Tips for Fourth of July With crowds of unfamiliar people and loud, scary noises, the Fourth of July can make even the most laid-back, four-legged family members apprehensive and unpredictable.

their pet has a microchip, they’ve taken the necessary steps. It’s critical your pet’s microchip is registered with your current contact information, and Found Animals recommends updating your contact info anytime you move or change phone numbers. If you’ve adopted your pet from a rescue or other organization, it’s important to transfer the chip registration. Register your pet’s microchip for free at found.org.

“Research shows that more pets are lost on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year and animal shelters are most crowded after the holiday, filled with lost dogs and cats,” said Aimee Gilbreath, executive director, Michelson Found Animals Foundation. “Taking steps to protect your 3.

Provide your pet with a safe space, such as a cozy bed, room or crate. Also close windows and doors to minimize sound and escape routes. Another option is an anti-anxiety wrap or coat. In a pinch, if you’re away from home, you can even create one from a scarf. 7. Try a calming aid. If you’re worried about a pet that stresses easily, talk to your vet in advance about CBD and anti-anxiety treats, chews, drops or other remedies that can help your pet relax. There are plenty of prescription and homeopathic solutions out there that can help your pet get the extra dose of relaxation he or she needs.
