Be Aware: High Risk of Heat Stroke in Dogs
During this time of year, pet owners should be cautious of how much “outside time” your dogs are getting due to the high risk of heat stroke. With temperatures in the 90’s and little to no rain in the area, dogs are at a higher risk of suffering from a heat stroke. Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Eric Clanton wants pet owners to know that this is a serious issue that can oftentimes be avoided.
Doctor Clanton says dogs do not have the ability to cool their bodies off like humans because they don’t sweat. It’s important that owners are familiar with signs that a dog is suffering from a heat stroke.
