Pet and Heatstroke

As the heat increases during this Australian summer, our pets become at risk of suffering from heat stress or heatstroke.

Heatstroke occurs when the body temperature increases to a point where they cannot cool down.

Common signs of heatstroke include:

  • Excessive panting

  • Drooling

  • Agitation

  • Bright pink or red gums

  • Lethargy

  • Collapse

Tips to prevent heatstroke:

  • Avoid exercising on a hot day

  • Keep your pet indoors in an air-conditioned room

  • Do not leave your pet in direct sunlight

  • Never leave a pet in the car

  • Always have water accessible

  • Offer cool, damp towels for the pet to sit on

If you are concerned that your pet is suffering from heat stroke, please call us on 49252999.
