As the warmer weather approaches, it is important to keep an eye out for signs of heat stroke in your dog. It can be common in dogs when the weather is very hot. You want to watch for excessive panting and signs of distress, they both may indicate overheating.
What to Do
You may want to move your pet to a shaded area, or a cooler environment. You can place cool, wet towels around the neck, the groin area and the armpits. You can also wet the paws and ear flaps. Blowing cold air on the wetted areas can speed the cooling process as well. And most importantly, you want to go to the closest veterinarian near you as soon as possible.
