Keeping your Pets Safe this Summer: Heatstroke

As the temperature is starting to rise coming into the warmer months, it's important pet owners know the causes, symptoms, prevention and treatment of heatstroke.

The best way to avoid heatstroke is:
- Keeping them indoors out of direct heat
- Access to plenty of fresh clean drinking water
- Never leave your pet in the car
- Avoid exercising your animal in hot weather
- Keep them off hot paved grounds that absorb heat

The symptoms to lookout for are:
- Excessive panting or breathing distress
- Drooling, panting
- Lethargy; weakness
- Increased heart rate
- Dizziness, staggering
- Muscle tremors

If you suspect your pet has heatstroke:
- Remove them from the hot environment immediately
- Apply/spray cool water to their fur and skin and fan them to increase heat loss
- DO NOT use ice-cold water as this can worsen their condition
- Once safe to do so, take them to your nearest Veterinary Hospital.
