HEATSTROKE

Heatstroke is an emergency situation that requires quick first aid to save an animal’s life. The first remedy is prevention-- Keeping your pets cool is a must; remember that pets do not have sweat glands over the entire body as we do. Fresh water must be kept available at all times.

  • Never leave your pet in the car, even with windows open cars can rapidly become like an oven
  • Concrete runs without shade can also lead to sunstroke
  • Being confined in crates or carriers with too little ventilation can lead to heatstroke
