Tips on Heat Stroke

Heat stroke is a condition arising from an extremely high body temperature, typically 105 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit. At these temperatures, severe damage occurs to body organs and, without treatment, death is imminent. The most common cause is leaving your pet in a closed car in the hot sun. Treatment is aimed at preserving organ function. If you suspect your pet is suffering from heat stroke, quickly cool him off with tap water, not ice water, and see a veterinarian immediately.
