During the summer months, our favorite dogs need special attention and care as they are particularly sensitive to high temperatures. Dogs cannot regulate their temperature through the sweat glands, like humans. However, just like humans, they can suffer from heatstroke.

Valuable advice is given by the veterinarian Athanasios Houdeloudis through Athens 9.84

  • Some breeds are more sensitive to high temperatures such as short-nosed boxers, boston terriers, bulldogs, Pekingese or the elderly or those suffering from chronic cardiovascular disease.
  • It is important to be able to recognize heatstroke, which can cause serious problems and even the death of the animal. Severe salivation, intense tachypnea, nausea, vomiting, seizures many times, redness of the skin or inside the ears, reddened skin around the eyes are symptoms of heatstroke.
  • If we recognize symptoms of heat exhaustion or heat stroke, the dog should be transported immediately to a very shady place, soaked in lukewarm water, allowed to dry, and given plenty of cool water. However, if the symptoms are severe, immediate veterinary support will be needed.
  • Avoid walking in very hot times of the day and intense exercise. We take him for a short walk early in the morning or in the evening.
  • We do not leave it for a short time in a parked vehicle.
  • We have often combed it to remove unnecessary dead hair, especially long-haired breeds.
  • And of course we will not leave him in the yard, in the heat, but inside the house near a fan or air conditioner.
