KNOW THE SIGNS OF HEATSTROKE

By July 28, 2016No Comments

The temperature inside a parked car can
reach 120° in minutes, even with
the windows slightly open.
For your pet, this can result in heatstroke,
which occurs when a dog’s or cat’s
temperature rises above 104°.

EXTREME PANTING / GASPING
VERY ANXIOUS BEHAVIOR
EXCESSIVELY HOT, DRY SKIN
DIZZINESS, LACK OF COORDINATION
SEVERE VOMITING OR DIARRHEA
WEAKNESS / FALLING / COLLAPSE

STOP Heatstroke in Pets

Let’s not over-exercise in the hottest times of the day.
Chill out on the intense work-outs.
Always have fresh, clean water around.
Keep my paws off hot pavement. Burns my tootsies.
Let’s play indoors when it’s super hot.
Give me cool places. Like a private cabana, a covered porch, or big shade tree.
