Heat Stroke

Get the animal’s temperature to drop using warm / cool water.

Dampen your pet entirely using wet towels to wrap it.

Rub alcohol on the paws of the animal.

Place it in an air-conditioned car and drive it to the nearest vet.

The temperature begins to drop, but your pet is not out of danger yet.  When the internal temperature

is high for any length of time, the internal “thermostat” has been violated.

This means that if your pet cools down too much, the temperature can go very low, creating another emergency.

It is best to take your pet to the nearest veterinary unit, to properly monitor its temperature and the condition of all internal organs and functions.

 

NOTE:  All information given on this page  is general information.  ALWAYS contact your veterinarian to obtain specific instructions for any emergency.
