Beat the Heat This Summer with your Dog!

Beat the Heat This Summer with your Dog!

 

UAE temperatures are rising, and we are all trying to find different ways to beat the heat. While we take some rest in the shade, or sip on our iced drinks, we shouldn’t forget about our pup who might be struggling to keep themselves cool. Dogs can quite easily overheat, or gain other heat-related problems, while outside in summer.

 

It is important to always keep an eye on your dog, particularly in the hot climate, and look out for any heat stroke signs like the below:

 

  1. Heavy panting or increased heart rate
  2. Bright red, gray, purple, or bluish gums
  3. Vomiting or diarrhea
  4. Excessive drooling
  5. Feeling lethargic or weak.

If you notice any of these signs in your dog, chances are he is suffering from a heatstroke which needs to be immediately acted upon. What you can do next: 

 

  1. Move your dog to a cool or shaded area immediately
  2. Lower the body temperature using cool or lukewarm water (not cold water)
  3. Monitor your dog’s temperature using a thermometer
  4. Allow your dog to drink small amounts of cool temperature water
  5. Ensure your dog’s temperature cools down gradually not rapidly to avoid him going into a shock.

 

Even if your dog seems to be recovering, call your vet to keep them updated and seek immediate help if required. Heatstroke can certainly be prevented if we stay cautious along with the help of cooling products that are specifically designed for it.
