  • Heat Stroke in Dogs

    The Florida summer heat can pose health risks for people but are even more dangerous for dogs. Heat Stroke in dogs can occur as quickly as 10 minutes! Larger dogs in particular are more susceptible to heat stroke so please avoid if possible outdoor activities with your Greyhound when temperatures are at their highest. Symptoms of heat stroke include intense, heavy panting, wide eyes, and weakness. If your dog exhibits any of these conditions, please get them inside to a cooled air-conditioned area immediately. Then place them in a tub of cool running water ensuring the water contacts their skin and allow it to run over their tongue and mouth. In the past, we had 2 dogs previously adopted from GPA succumb to heat stroke, one was only 2 years old. So please use caution with your Greyhound during the summer months.
