Is Your Dog Dehydrated?

Do you know the signs of a dehydrated dog or heatstroke? 

In the hot summer months, just running after a ball can leave your dog out of breath and very lethargic. A dog’s body is not very good a cooling down; they only release heat through the limited number of sweat glands between their toes and by panting. This means pups can easily become overheated, which can lead to more serious problems such as dehydration, heatstroke, and collapsing. Here are important signs to be aware of that may indicate an overheated or dehydrated dog. 

Check out this graphic and accompanying article from DogVacay Blog for the signs you should watch for and call your vet immediately.
