Heatstroke in Dogs

Heat stroke can occur very quickly in dogs from lack of water, being too active in the heat of the day or being left in parked cars or other areas which are far too hot.

Never leave a dog in a parked car on a hot day, even if the window is down or the car under shade, the temperature can reach over 50C within just a few minutes.  Even around the house, dogs can be struck by heat stroke if they are left without shade or under a hot patio.  They are not able to reduce their temperature like humans can so always need to be in cool conditions with lots of water always available to them.

Any dog that looks like they may be affected by heat stroke must get medical attention very quickly as it can actually result in death.
