12 Signs That Your Pet Is Too Hot! Watch Out For These
Written by : Maky

Dogs do normally have a higher body temperature than we do, and they have less ability to cool down. An overheating dog can regulate his body temperature  through panting ( it’s not terribly efficient in hot weather).  However , when the dog is overheated , he can suffer hard damage to heart, brain , nervous system and liver.

Recognize these signs of overheating:

Heatstroke is the often deadly result of overheating. It is mostly  caused by a dangerous elevation in a dog’s body temp.  Don’t  left your dog in a car during the summer months!  It can also  happen if your dog is exposed to high temperatures ( in late spring and the first weeks of summer) .

Symptoms:

1. Excessive thirst
2. Vomiting , and bloody diarrhea
3. Bright or dark red toque
4. Glazed eyes
5. Stumbling , staggering
6. Heavy panting
7. Increased pulse
8. Seizures
9. Weakness , collapse
10. Unconsciousness

Keep in your mind that some dogs are at higher risk for heat-related illness than others,
older dogs especially.

Tips for keeping your dog safe:

Remember this , never leave your dog alone in a parked car on a very warm and sunny day!  The temperature in your car on a warm day can rise very quickly! It takes only about ten minutes for the temperature to climb for +20 degrees,  for an example – the temperature is about eighty degrees , for ten minutes will rise to 100 degrees , and in a half of hour it can raise over one hundred and twenty degrees!  On these days , it is the best to leave your pet home.

Don’t exercise or walk your dog on a warm day!

Asphalt  on warm days is very dangerous and can quickly overheat your dog. Don’t allow your dog to stand , rest or walk on hot outdoor.
Exercise your dog only during the coolest parts of the day.  It is desirable after sunset , or early in the morning.  If the outdoor temperature hits about ninety degrees , you  should take your pet indoor where is fine temperature.

Provide to your dog plenty of clean drinking water all the time!

Your dog can become dehydrated in hot weather.  Your dog should drink between  one half and one ounce of water per pound of body weight.
