Specialists in Yucatan recommend taking precautions with pets at home, since animals are also affected by the so-called “heat stroke”, so veterinarians advise extreme precautions for the care of pets, especially some dogs that people use to tie up in patios or yards, where sometimes these poor animals do not have a roof to take cover from the scorching sun, provoking heat stroke.
Experts explain that there are several factors that make dogs the most affected pets, starting with the fact that their normal temperature is between 38.5 and 38.8 degrees Celsius, because their fur makes them even more hot, and because they do not have the ability to sweat.
The main symptoms can be: too much panting, dry snout, that they lie down on their bellies, looking for fresh shaded spots to rest. Specialists recommend bathing them with fresh water and keeping them well hydrated and with drinking water available at all times.
Excessive panting and signs of discomfort indicate overheating in dogs. A dog overheating may also be unable or unwilling to move around. Other signs of heatstroke in dogs include drooling, reddened gums, vomiting, diarrhea, mental dullness or loss of consciousness, uncoordinated movement, and collapse in more advanced phases.
