Our pets can’t sweat all over their bodies like humans can. They rely on panting to get rid of the hot air and only produce a small amount of sweat through their foot pads. This makes them extremely susceptible to heatstroke in hot and humid conditions.
Heatstroke can be particularly dangerous and even fatal so it’s important to be able to recognize the signs and know what to do.
