Phew! It’s hot outside! While humans sweat to cool off, a pet’s fur prevents sweating, thereby trapping heat which causes a rapid rise in internal temperature. Heatstroke can occur when a pet’s internal temperature rises just a few degrees, and can cause serious problems and/or death. While we have heard not to leave pets in a car on a hot day, there are several other situations which can cause heatstroke in any kind of pet. Do you know the signs and symptoms, as well as some emergency first aid to help if heatstroke occurs?
Your pet relies on YOU!
Keep them safe in the heat of summer!
