Summer is a great time for pets -- but it's extra important to keep your pets safe during the hot summer months, too. Don't miss our tips on the #TuesdayMorning blog!

It's especially important to keep your dog groomed during the summer. • Keep your dog groomed during hot weather. Matted fur holds heat (and provides a hiding place for summer fleas and ticks.) Use a rake to brush through thick fur; available at #TuesdayMorning for $4.99, compare at $9.99.

Plan summer dog walks for early morning and late evening hours when temperatures drop.

Shampooing your dog is a great way to kill fleas naturally during the summer months. Lather your dog and leave the shampoo on a few extra minutes -- or have your dog sit in a tub of water. Many fleas congregate in the tail area and will drown in the bath water.

Sand, concrete, and asphalt can get extremely hot during the summer months. If you can't hold your hand over a surface for over a few seconds, please don't walk your dog on without foot protection. Either use booties especially made for dogs or walk your dog on grass.

Cats love sunshine -- but, like us, they can overdo it. Panting, drooling, bright red gums and tongue, weakness and anxiety are all signs of overheating. If you think your cat has become overheated, get your cat to a cool place and immediately visit your vet.

ID tags are especially important during summer months, whether you are traveling or at home. More pets go missing on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year. Bring your dog inside when fireworks are planned. Always have an ID and collar on him in case he should bolt out the door. You'll find collars at #TuesdayMorning for as low as $4.99 with an MSRP of $14.99

After a swim, dry your dog to prevent hot spots from developing under arms.

Dogs cool themselves by panting. If your dog is drooling excessively, has bright red gums and looks worried, cool your dog with wet towels immediately and call your vet because he may be showing signs of heat stroke.

Would you like to start handling some of your dog's grooming needs at home? You'll find brushes, rakes, shampoos, and conditioner at your local #TuesdayMorning.

Is your dog frightened of fireworks and thunderstorms? Pressure garments, which work by swaddling your dog much like you would swaddle a baby, help many dogs. You'll find calming coats at #TuesdayMorning for just $19.99, compared to $39.99 at other stores.

Leashes aren't just a safety tool but they're also a requirement at many locations. Look for stylish leashes for as little as $5.99 at #TuesdayMorning stores (compares at $14.99).

Always pick up your dog's waste on your summer outings. It's not only the law many places but it's also important for the health of both dogs and humans. You'll find waste bags and dispensers at #TuesdayMorning for as little as $1.99 (compare at $3.99).

Does your summer include a beach visit? Some basic safety tips for your dog: always provide fresh water, never let your dog drink salt water, watch for jellyfish and debris on the beach, don't let your dog overexert, and watch for signs of overheating.

Summer means dirty dogs! Always use shampoo made especially for dogs like Wags & Wiggles Dog Shampoo - priced at $3.99 at #TuesdayMorning (compare at $9.99).

Corral those summer dog toys -- and cat toys! -- in a pet toy bin. Priced at $11.99 at #TuesdayMorning (compare at $23.99).

Do you need to distract your dog during times of thunder, fireworks, or loud summer parties? All-meat treats like Pure Piggy Pig Ear Strips -- $5.99 at #TuesdayMorning (compare at $14.99) -- are great for distracting your dog.

Provide plenty of cool, fresh water during summer months. The floating insert in DrinkBetter water bowls - available at #TuesdayMorning for $7.99 (compare at $24.99) - force your dog to drink more slowly, a safer alternative to gulping.

Keep your dog's belly fur trimmed short during the summer months to help him stay cool by lying on tile surfaces or cool mats. If you take your dog to a groomer, ask for a "tunnel tummyl" cut.

Lake fun means muddy paws. Lightweight towels like the Dogs Unleashed pet towel -- $3.99 at #TuesdayMorning (compare at $7.99) -- make it easy to clean paws on the move.
