Is Your Pet Suffering Heat Stroke?

Rapid panting, bright red gums, disorientation, vomiting and collapsing indicate heat stroke versus just overheating.

Warning Signs  

Suspected heat stroke is a dire emergency requiring immediate vet treatment.

Act Immediately   

Ensure pets always have shaded spots and ventilation in hot weather.

Access to Shade

Keep multiple bowls of fresh water available at all times.

Ensure Water Availability  

Regularly brush pets to remove excess hair helping regulate body temperature.   

Groom Regularly  

Only exercise pets very early or late when it's cooler out.

 Avoid Midday Walks

Note changes in behavior signaling overexertion or overheating.
