Heat Stroke & Dogs
As we start to head into the summer we need to remember that dogs can get heat stroke too.The signs of heat stroke in dogs are panting, drooling, drowsy and can seem uncoordinated. Should you find a dog with these symptons during hot weather you should stop any exercise, use cool water to slowly reduce the dogs temperature and allow the dog to drink small amounts of water. The water should be cool not ice cold.
If you are transporting dogs in hot weather make sure that you leave windows open to allow air to flow through the vehicle and use air conditioning where fitted.
