Heat Exhaustion

Unfortunately our dogs are unable to sweat. The only way dogs cool themselves is by panting.
Panting helps reduce your dog's body temperature. It's up to you to make sure your dog doesn't overheat. Heat Exhaustion is the early stages of Heat Stroke. Always have cool water available for your dog. Move your dog into a cooler or shady place. Stop any vigorous activity. Apply cold wet towels over your dog let them air dry. Dogs that are higher risk for heat exhaustion are older dogs, overweight dogs, breeds with snub noses, Pugs , Boston, Boxers Bull dogs.
