Heat Warning!

It's no surprise that our summer is already blazing.  What is surprising is how many dogs are already in seriously compromised health because of it.

Even "outside" dogs cannot handle 100 plus temperatures. Particularly when we went from 90 (relatively hot) to 100 over night.

One of our favorite guests perished this week from heat stroke while with his owner.  The owner did not realize or understand how dangerous heat can be for dogs.

Dogs cool themselves through panting and by sweat glands on the bottom of their feet and on their noses. Because dogs can't tell us when they are hot, we must be able to recognize the signs.
