Summer Heat – What To Do If Your Dog Overheats

San Francisco is blessed with our Ocean Air Conditioner. Ask any San Franciscan and they’ll tell you our summer starts in September, when the Central Valley in California begins to cool down, but for most of the traditional summer months we melt if it gets above 75 degrees and after three days of hot sun (you know, if the temperature gets to around 70 degrees), we can count on the fog to roll in and cool us off. But sadly, not everyone is so fortunate and even here there are those rare days when we are concerned about pet overheating. An overheated pet can be very scary and if not treated life threatening, even for the most seasoned pet parent.  Our video explains the symptoms and responses to a dog overheating.   We hope that you are never confronted with this situation but hope this video provides valuable insight.

Thanks for reading and watching.
