Notice! Pets should also be protected from heatstroke!!!!!

Update Time:2023/7/14
Every summer, people's clothes get thinner and thinner, but pets are still covered with hair. At this time of year, the number of heatstroke pets received by pet hospitals will skyrocket.


01  Symptoms of heat stroke
Dogs: panting, rapid heartbeat and pulse, mucous membrane congestion, dark red gums, varicose veins, dehydration, purple tongue, sluggishness, pharyngeal edema caused by continuous panting, and dyspnea.

Puppies, old dogs, fat dogs, short-nosed dogs, or dogs with poor cardiopulmonary function are all high-risk groups for heatstroke.

Cat: staggering gait, rapid pulse and breathing, panting, drooling, red tongue and mouth, vomiting, lethargy.

02 Tips for relieving summer heat

Shaved for summer:
Hair trimming can help furry children to dissipate heat and spend a cool summer, but it is not allowed to shave all the hair, it must be kept at a certain length, so that the pet's skin is still protected by hair and will not cause sunburn due to the sun. For cats, shearing also prevents licking in too much fur during the moulting season. If the pet refuses to be sheared, brush its hair frequently to prevent tangles and hyperthermia.


Hot weather can easily dehydrate your pet, so in addition to providing plenty of cool, clean water, it's important to make sure it has cool, ventilated shelter to prevent excessive sun exposure. Also, keep your pets from exercising excessively on hot days, and keep them indoors when the weather is hot. Please choose early morning or evening time for going out.

Pet Safety, three Never:

Never tie your pet outdoors for a long time, it may die from heatstroke and suffocation;

Never leave pets alone in the car, even if there is a gap in the window. The temperature in the car rises rapidly in hot weather, which is extremely easy to cause fatal heat stroke;

Never leave doors or windows open without screens to prevent pets from jumping or falling.

Pay attention to the warning signs and symptoms of pets:
Excessive heat may cause pets to exhibit excessive panting, labored breathing, racing heart, drooling, mild weakness, trance or even collapse. Seizures, bloody diarrhea and vomiting may occur when the body temperature exceeds 40 degrees.

Animals with flat faces, such as pugs and Persian cats, are more prone to heat stroke due to breathing problems. They and pets with older, overweight, heart or lung problems should try to keep them in a cool, air-conditioned room.

Street protection:
Try to avoid taking pets out during hot hours. If you must travel in hot weather, do not let your pet stay on the asphalt road, so as not to cause its body temperature to rise rapidly or burn its sensitive foot pads.

03 A Coup for Treating Heatstroke
Take to a cool place: Immediately move pets from heat to a cool place. For example, keeping a pet in a confined space such as a car, or on a hot asphalt road, will make it uncomfortable due to overheating.

Cool down: Cool your pet with the resources you have at hand. You can use flushing water or wipe the whole body with ice cubes wrapped in a towel to achieve the cooling effect, and pay attention to ensure that the environment is well ventilated.

Keep the airway unobstructed: Once a pet has heatstroke, it will often be accompanied by vomiting. At this time, pay attention to whether its tongue or airway is blocked, which may lead to dangers such as suffocation.

If the pet has fallen into a state of shock and coma, wrap it in a wet towel and send it directly to the hospital, and keep its head down and neck straight to keep the airway open.
