Active Dogs + Atlanta Summers = Potential for Heatstroke!
It’s hot out there and understanding how your dog regulates his temperature is important for his safety. Instead of sweating as humans do, dogs eliminate heat by panting. If you notice your dog is panting excessively or unwilling to move, this may be a sign of heat stroke. The most common cause of heat stroke is a careless pet owner. Don’t be that owner! Learn how to protect your pet here in Vladimir Negron’s article in PetMD. Our employees understand this and take care to prevent problems for all of our furry dog walking clients.
