We are deep in the dog days of summer - a dangerous time for our furry loved ones.
Dogs don't sweat the same way humans do and can become extremely overheated in the summer sun.
Signs to look for when your dog is dosing in the summer heat:
1. Heavy panting
2. Excessive drooling
3. Frequent breaks lying down
4. Fast/irregular heart beat
5. Vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, and woozy movements
Ways to treat/prevent our heatstroke dogs:
1. Wet and cool them off
2. Contact your local vet
3. Always have access to fresh cold water and shade and contact your vet about dietary options
Protect your dog from the heat and keep your pooch happy this summer!
