According to Vets Now and Drs. Fosters and Smith , veterinary experts, dogs are subject to heat stroke in extreme temperatures, especially since panting is their only way of cooling down. In extremely hot weather, watch for signs of heat stroke, including heavy panting, rapid pulse and drooling. Your dog's extremities may be hot to the touch. Avoid the potential for heat stroke by providing outside dogs with plenty of shade and fresh water. Try not to do any strenuous activity on hot days, or change your walking or jogging routine to early mornings or in the evening after the sun has gone down.
