Heat Stroke

Dogs and cats body temperature are higher than humans! (100.0-102.5) is the normal range. That’s why it’s important to make sure your pet has plenty of shade and water to drink on these excessive hot days! If you usually take your dog on long walks or jogs, it would be better to cut the length down.

 

 

Signs of heat stroke to look for are: collapsing, not as responsive, bright pink skin color, excessive panting, labored breathing and high body temperature. If you think your pet has experienced any of these symptoms take them to a veterinarian  right away.
