Please take the time to watch this video.

It is very hot outside now.

Dogs don't talk so humans or dog owner have to guess what is wrong with the dog.
The veterinarian, of course, can help you find out what is wrong with your pet.

Dog panting heavily or fast, they seem agitated or excited.
Dog probably feels very hot and needs shade, air conditioning, fan, water to drink, stand in cool water or go to basement where it is usually cool (not hot).

Go to animal doctor or animal hospital if dog or pet doesn't improve.
PROTECT your pet from HOT SUN/HEAT. Dogs can die of heat stroke/dehydration=panting, fast breathing. Dogs need WATER, SHADE, COOL air

Never forget that dogs don’t like hot weather & hot sun.
If your dog is panting heavily with red tongue, your dog is hot & needs to go inside a cool building.

Turn on the air conditioner or fan for your dog or bring your dog to the basement where it is always cool.

Always make sure that your dog has water to drink.

Your dog needs shade so that your dog can hide from the sun.

If your dog is unable to walk, let your dog stand in cool water. Make sure that it is cool water & not cold water.

Wet his nose with cool water.

If your dog’s breathing or panting sounds really bad, your dog sounds like he or she is in pain & suffering, your dog sounds like he or she is having a heart attack, you have to bring your dog to the vet as soon as possible.

It is possible that the vet can save your dog or your vet will euthanize your dog.

Leave your dog in a cool home instead of bringing him outside to a hot outdoor festival or hot outdoor activity.

Don’t leave dog in a hot car. Hot car is hot like an oven.

Don’t leave dog outside in hot backyard or hot balcony.

Hot sun causes hot sunny days but it can be hot at night too.
Turn on air conditioner or fan for your dog or bring your dog to the basement.
