Heatstroke develops when dogs can’t reduce their body temperature. Symptoms include: heavy panting, profuse salivation, rapid pulse, very red gums/tongue, lethargy, lack of coordination, reluctance/inability to rise after collapsing, vomiting, diarrhoea, loss of consciousness.

  • Act quickly, heatstroke can be fatal! If dogs show any signs of heatstroke, move them to a shaded, cool area.
  • Immediately douse them with cool (not cold) water, to avoid shock – you could use a shower, or spray and place them in the breeze of a fan.
  • Let them drink small amounts of cool water.
  • Continue dousing until their breathing settles – never cool dogs so much that they begin shivering.
  • Once your dog is cool, immediately go to the vet.
