Heat Stress

Westbury Animal Hospital - Thursday, June 12, 2014




The weather is getting warmer and everyone is enjoying the outdoors. I personally enjoy the dog park and laying on the patio for hours watching dogs walk by. 

However, owners need to be very careful in this part of the country with high incidences of heat stress. 

Check out this link to our "The Heat is On!" article by Dr. Betzen on common issues and signs of heat stress

Heat Stress

Please keep these tips in mind:

1. Never leave animals in a car unattended even for a few minutes. 

2. Always provide shade and water for pets outside

3. Walk and jog your pets in the very early hours of the morning

4. If you suspect even mild heat stress in your pet wrap them in a towel doused in cool (not cold) water and bring them to the veterinarian immediately!
