Heat advisory for pets

With temperatures and humidity soaring to record highs this weekend, area veterinarians warn pet owners to take every precaution to keep their furry friends cool and safe. Extreme exposure to sun and heat can lead to your dog experiencing dangerous health effects. Dr. Jordan Kobilca from the Door County Veterinary Hospital shares some signs your pet may be suffering from heatstroke.



Dr. Kobilca says you should take your pet to a veterinarian if they experience any symptoms of heatstroke. Animals should never be left alone in vehicles, and pet owners should keep any outdoor activity to a minimum during high daytime temperature and humidity. Early morning or later evening hours are best for taking your pet for walks or exercise. You can find more tips to keep your pets safe in extreme heat here.
