Heat Stroke In Dogs
Keeping your dog cool is more than a comfort issue - it's a serious health issue that affects thousands of dogs every year. Overheating in dogs can lead to serious and potentially fatal conditions such as heat stroke, organ failure, cardiac arrest and neurological issues.
Unlike people, dogs don't sweat out excess body heat, they rely on panting to cool their body temperature. This is extremely inefficient and isn't enough to keep him from getting overheated. Dogs can easily overexert themselves in warm weather and are much more susceptible to overheating than people. Heat stress or stroke can even happen on a mild day during regular outdoor activity.
"The heat-related death of a beloved pet is a tragic, completely preventable situation."
-Dr. Karen Becker DVM
Dogs at extra risk
While all dogs are at risk for overheating, some dogs are more prone to it than others. Certain dogs face an additional risk for heat stroke, exhaustion or just being able to safely enjoy outdoor activity.
Brachiocephalic (flat face) breeds are less effective at panting because of the shape of their faces. Long haired, overweight, elderly, very young, working or hunting, extremely active or a dog with health problems must take additional precautions to protect them from the heat.
Dogs not acclimated to a new environment, with otherwise moderate temperatures also have an increased risk of overheating.
Kool Collar has been a life saver in hot weather! My little Boston Terrier does not handle heat well and this cools her right down. The melting ice runs down her neck and chest, keeping her heart rate and body temp down.
