What to Know About Heat Stroke in Pets

If your animal does overheat, it’s important to know the warning signs.

Certain breeds and animals are more susceptible to heat stroke. If your animal is overweight, elderly or already has a heart condition, is it imperative that you take special care to ensure your pet is well hydrated and has access to ample cool space.  Symptoms of overheating in pets can include the following:

  • Excessive panting or particularly heavy breathing
  • Lethargy or mild weakness
  • Increased heart rate
  • Drooling
  • An elevated body temperature of 104 or more degrees Fahrenheit
  • Seizures
  • Bloody diarrhea
  • Vomit

If your animal exhibits any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately and move your pet to a cool, shady location. Let your pet drink small amounts of cool water and apply cool towels to her chest or neck. 

Summer is officially here!

For humans, that means better beach days and much needed vacations, but for your animals, the warmer weather can be dangerous. Even the healthiest pets can suffer from dehydration and heat exhaustion, so it’s important to take proper precautions and protect your pets from overheating. By following a few simple steps, you can help keep your pets safe and comfortable all summer long.  

Beat the Heat

First things first, it is highly recommended that you schedule a visit with your vet for an early summer check-up and ask your doctor about flea and tick prevention. Have your pet tested for heartworm if they are not currently on year-round prevention medicine.

Use these four tips throughout the warmer months to protect your favorite four-legged friends.
