It’s Hot Out There 🌡

Southeast Texas has been under an “Excessive Heat Watch” for multiple days and there doesn’t seem to be a sign of relief anytime soon. Heatstroke is a real possibility for our pets. With this in mind, we wanted to share some signs to be looking for:

  • Excessive Panting
  • Uncomfortable
  • Restless
  • Pale or Dry Gums
  • Lethargy

If you think your dog is suffering from heatstroke, get them indoors and plenty of water as quickly as possible. Call your vet immediately for directions.

A few quidelines to follow during high temperatures are:

  • Avoid outdoor activity during the hottest parts of the day.
  • Take frequent breaks from outdoor activity.
  • Make sure that there is plenty of fresh water available.
  • NEVER leave your pet in the car.
