Heat Exhaustion

In the chapter on the dog's body and how it functions, you will recall that we mentioned the dog's difficulty in adjusting to excessive heat. Your dog can easily be overcome by heat if you leave him in a hot car with windows closed or in a poorly ventilated building.

Symptoms of heat exhaustion

Heavy and labored breathing, vomiting and prostration are symptoms of heat exhaustion.

First Aid

Remove the dog to a shady and well-ventilated spot. Next, wet him with cold water, particularly his head. When he regains consciousness, give him some diluted black coffee. Don't try to give him any liquids while he is unconscious. Use a small bottle and pour the coffee into a sac or pouch in the side of the dog's mouth. Consult your veterinarian for further treatment.
