Heat Stroke in Dogs & Cats- Know the Signs

Heat stroke is a serious condition that unfortunately occurs all too often in dogs and cats. Your pet can succumb to heat stroke when his body’s core temperature rises excessively — typically to 105 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. Dogs and cats are especially vulnerable to heat stroke because their furry bodies cannot sweat to dissipate heat. Rather they pant or breathe rapidly to cool themselves. When they are unable to effectively cool themselves, their core temperature rises rapidly. This can lead to serious and sometimes fatal complications including seizures, organ failure and clotting problems. Any animal suspected of having heat stroke is experiencing a medical emergency and should receive immediate veterinary treatment. Among the most common (and also most preventable) causes of heatstroke is leaving your dog in a parked car. Check out our guide below to recognize the signs, how to avoid and what to do in an emergency.
