Extreme heat dangerous to pets

With continuing temperatures forecasted to top out at nearly 90 degrees for the next several days, pet owners are reminded that hot and humid weather can be dangerous for our four-legged friends.  Dr. Jordan Kobilca of Door County Veterinary Hospital and Luxemburg Pet Clinic says a few preventative measures can go a long way in protecting your dog in the heat.

 

 

Dr. Jordan says if you ever have to travel and leave a pet in a vehicle for a brief time, be sure to park in a shaded area while keeping the air-conditioner on.  Keeping a dish of fresh, cool water available to your pet at all times is advised as well.  If you suspect symptoms of heatstroke, like excessive panting and lethargic behavior from your dog, Dr. Jordan recommends bringing your pet to a veterinarian immediately.
