Ep 18.2: Hot Dogs - Heat Stroke & Overheating
How hot is too hot? Your dog wants to keep chasing the ball, but he’s already panting heavily. Will he just know when to stop?
Heat stroke is a very real risk in our warm (and often humid) Australian summers. Dogs can be at particular risk due to their inability to sweat. When panting can no longer effectively cool them down, a whole cascade of events can be triggered which can be life threatening.
In this episode Bec and Dr Glenn discuss the warning signs and symptoms of heat stroke and what to do if you suspect your dog is overheating. They also discuss preventative measures that you should consider at this time of year, some of which may be pertinent all year round with particular dogs and breeds of dogs.
