Dogs are intolerant of too much heat. So, it is crucial that you’re aware of the signs of heat stress or heat stroke, and how to treat your dog if they start to occur.
If an animal experiences heatstroke, you may notice hyperventilation, excessive panting, dry gums that become pale, increased salivation, rapid pulse, confusion, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, and possibly rectal bleeding. If overheating continues, his breathing efforts will become slow, or worse, absent. This can result in a seizure or coma.
Make sure your pet has a shaded, breeze place to rest, away from direct sunlight. Always provide plenty of water and don’t push your pup too hard when playing outside.
