Top 7 Tips for Preventing Dog Heatstroke

Ensure unlimited access to fresh, cool water and encourage drinking to keep dogs well hydrated, especially before walks.  


Ensure Dogs have ample shady spots to rest both indoors and outdoors as refuge from the blazing sunshine.


Use dog-safe sunscreen, light clothing, hats, or shade structures for vulnerable, thinly haired breeds when outdoors.  

Sun Protection 

Monitor for early overheating signs like excessive panting and test ground/asphalt temps before letting dogs walk on them.   

Temperature Checks   

Avoid intense exercise on hot days and instead opt for mentally stimulating games to tire dogs out while staying cool indoors.  

Exercise Carefully

Know indicators like vomiting, diarrhea, weakness and bright red gums that denote heatstroke requiring immediate veterinary help.

Trouble Signs

Your vehicle is properly climate controlled before transporting dogs and never leave them unattended in vehicles.
