Summer is in full swing and heat waves are starting to take their toll on humans and animals alike. During periods of extreme heat, taking your dog jogging or running errands can result in heat stroke, turning a normal outing into a crisis situation. Unlike humans, dogs do not possess sweat glands and their fur naturally traps heat. Panting is their main method of cooling down, but excessive panting, a natural reaction to overheating, can lead to further fluid loss and dehydration.
