As we move into the hotter days of summer, we encourage you to learn about the dangers of heatstroke for pets. Heatstroke is one devastating thing that is PREVENTABLE!! Please do not walk pets during peak of day, allow rigorous playtime or activity outside, or even allow long periods of time outside in very hot weather (even high 70s-80s for some animals depending on their risk level). Heatstroke can lead to organ failure, seizures, and even death. Brachycephalic dog breeds (pugs, boxers, bulldogs, and other short-nosed dogs, very old or very young, those with health issues, and long-haired dogs are most at risk, but any dog, cat, or animal for that matter can suffer from heatstroke. Hot pavement can also burn paw pads! If the pavement can burn your bare feet, then it can burn our pets' feet. If you think your pet may be suffering from heatstroke, attempt to cool them down with a cool bath/shower (not frigid cold) and a fan AND call your vet (or AEC during business hours) immediately!

If you find an injured turtle please contact the appropriate authority. Do not keep any wild animals in your home (this is illegal without a permit). The Univerisity of Illinois Veterinary Hospital has a 24-7 intake center for injured wildlife. You can also contact a licenced rehabilitator. ☺🐢
TURTLES are very active this time of year as they search for the perfect soil in which to lay their eggs. WHEN DO TURTLES NEED TO BE RESCUED? Turtles sometimes need to be rescued when crossing the road. Always place the turtle on the side of the road that it was heading toward. Be careful of the traffic - don't get yourself hurt! Turtles need to be rescued when they get caught in window wells, fences, sewers or ditches. You may help them out and send them on their way - in the same direction that they were going! Turtles need to be rescued and need professional help when they are attacked by dogs or cats. If the turtle is injured in any way, take it to a wildlife rehabilitator. (You can minimize this tragedy by keeping pets well attended.) Turtles need to be rescued and need professional help when they are hit by a mower or a car. Sometimes they get caught by fishing hooks or fishing line. If the turtle is injured in any way, take it to a wildlife rehabilitator. Even a cracked shell (called a carapace) can be repaired! PROTECTING TURTLES Turtles are disappearing in Illinois and all over the world at an alarming rate! Only a handful of natural areas remain for turtles. Accidents on roads and highways are the leading cause of death. Too many turtles are being kept by individuals as pets or sold to pet stores - taking the breeding population out of the wild. Many get shipped to foreign countries like Japan where they bring high prices. Seeing this, CITES (The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) added several native turtles to their protected list. This protection means that no one may ship these turtles to other countries to be sold as pets without a special permits. CITES protects wildlife against over-exploitation. It prevents international trade from threatening species with extinction. Sun seeking turtles can end up in deadly highways. Illinois landowners can help wildlife by creating new habitat and restoring abused habitat. Dead turtles don't appreciate good intentions - so start today! If you need help - contact your local soil and water conservation district. WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP? Please, don't keep turtles as pets! Ask yourself the following questions..... Can I correctly identify the turtle and do I know its natural history? Turtles can live as long or longer than humans, am I ready to make a lifetime stewardship commitment? Can I create all the habitats that it will need - inside my house? Can I give it enough sunlight and exercise? Where will it hibernate? Where will I get the proper foods? How much and when do I feed? Will I be able to recognize the symptoms of turtle diseases? Can these diseases be passed to humans? Can I afford veterinary care? Will keeping a turtle as a pet decrease or increase the native turtle population? Does the turtle want to be a pet or does it want to be free?
