Heat stroke in Pets: Infographic

Summertime brings a wealth of adventures and delightful fun, but it can also become worrisome when heat stroke strikes, and believe me, this can happen in the blink of an eye.

Heatstroke in pets is a critical condition that occurs when a pet overheats. Dogs are more prone to heatstroke as they do not always have the means to regulate their body temperature effectively.

Dogs Most at Risk of Heatstroke

Boxers, Chow Chows, Greyhounds, Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, Pugs, Golden Retrievers, Dogue de Bordeauxs, English Springer Spaniels, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and Staffordshire Bull Terriers

Common signs of Heatstroke

  • excessive panting,
  • drooling,
  • elevated heart rate,
  • disorientation
  • seizures
  • vomiting & diarrhoea
  • weakness, and collapse.

Heatstroke can lead to organ failure, brain damage, and death.
It is therefore vital for our loved one’s safety and wellbeing that proactive measures are taken to prevent heat stroke during hot days and summertime.

Severe heat stroke can be fatal within an hour. Should your pet show signs of heatstroke, cool their body down gradually with cool (not cold) or lukewarm water and small sips of water, and promptly seek veterinary help.

 *We have compiled a few guidelines to help you keep your loved one safe and still enjoy summer to its fullest.
