‘Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun’ Please please do not walk your dogs while the temperatures are high. Dogs can die very quickly of heat stroke which is indicated by a change in breathing or panting…..the dog is unable to pant fast enough to cool itself down when battling against external heat. The brain looses oxygen and so suffers a stroke. This is especially important to those breeds whose breathing is already severely compromised with compressed noses and shortened mouths such as Pugs, Cavaliers, British Bull dogs Pekineses etc. If you must take them out bring them swimming…..be warned.
