Keep your pet from overheating indoors or out with a cooling body wrap, vest or mat such as the Keep Cool Mat. Soak these products in cool water, and they'll stay cool but usually dry for up to three days.
If your dog doesn't find baths stressful, see if they enjoy a cooling soak. Extreme temperatures can cause heatstroke. Some signs of heatstroke are heavy panting, glazed eyes, a rapid heartbeat, difficulty breathing, excessive thirst, lethargy, fever, dizziness, lack of coordination, profuse salivation, vomiting, a deep red or purple tongue, seizure and unconsciousness. Animals are at particular risk for heat stroke if they are very old, very young, overweight, not conditioned to prolonged exercise, or have heart or respiratory disease. Some breeds of dogs—like boxers, pugs, shih tzus and other dogs and cats with short muzzles—will have a much harder time breathing in extreme heat.
Move your pet into the shade or an air-conditioned area. Let them drink small amounts of cool water or lick ice cubes. Take them directly to a veterinarian.
