Caring for pets during the "dog days" of summer

The so-called dog days of summer are here and a local veterinarian is offering some advice on keeping your pets safe during the traditionally hottest month of the year.  Dr. Jordan Kobilca of the Door County Veterinary Hospital and Luxemburg Pet Clinic says extreme heat and direct sunshine can be dangerous for your dog.

 

 

 Dr. Jordan adds that dogs can suffer from heatstroke and sunburn much like humans.  He says pets showing signs of excessive panting and difficulty breathing, along with lethargy or weakness may be suffering from heatstroke.  Pets should be brought into a cool place Dr. Jordan advises and taken to a veterinarian immediately.
