If you plan on bringing your pet to the Currituck Outer Banks, be sure to follow these safety tips:
If you plan on sitting on the beach for a long period of time, make sure you have a good amount of water available for your pet and a shady spot for them to cool off. It is not easy wearing a fur coat during the summer, and overheating and heat prostration are possibilities.
If possible, don't let your pet ingest too much salt water while playing in the surf. The most common side effects of ingesting salt water are diarrhea and vomiting. These symptoms should subside over the course of the day. If you are in doubt about the amount of salt water ingested, call one of the local veterinarians listed here for more advice.
Pay close attention to warnings issued due to rip currents or high surf. Your pets are just as susceptible to water hazards as you and your family, so always make sure to keep a close eye on them in the water.
Roadways and sand can get extremely hot during the summer. If it is too hot for you to walk barefoot on, then it is probably too hot for your pet as well.
Watch out for sand spurs
Fleas and ticks are present on the Currituck Outer Banks, so make sure to apply your pet's medication in plenty of time so it can take effect.
