Prevention of Heatstroke During the Summer

September 2, 2010

Dear Clients and Pets,

Summertime is the hottest time of the year.  Your pets are susceptible to a heatstroke.  Because we have seen many of these cases, it is recommended that your pets stay inside the home from 10am to 4pm(the most dangerous times of the day).

Some signs of a heatstroke include, but are not limited to:

  • body temperatures of 104-110F degrees
  • excessive panting
  • dark or bright red tongue and gums
  • sticky or dry tongue and gums
  • staggering
  • stupor
  • seizures
  • bloody diarrhea or vomiting
  • coma
  • death


If your pet must be outside, please remember to keep a clean, fresh bowl of water and have them be by a shady area.

If your pet indicates any symptoms of heatstroke, please rush them in to see me.

Healthy Regards,

Dr. Joe Barbosa
