Heat Stroke

Updated: Jun 5

Sadly today we have seen a case of heat stroke please be cautious in the sun.

Make sure to walk your dogs in the evening or early morning to prevent heat stroke. If the pavement is to hot to touch its too hot for your pets paws. DO NOT WALK YOUR DOGS IN BETWEEN 11am -7PM

Make sure your rabbit hutches are in the shade, a damp towel can be used to keep the hutch cool.

Signs of heatstroke in dogs include:

  • Panting, which increases as heatstroke progresses.

  • Drooling, salivating.

  • Agitation, restlessness.

  • Bright red tongue.

  • Very red or pale gums.

  • Increased heart rate.

  • Breathing distress.

  • Vomiting, diarrhoea (possibly with blood)
