Step 1: Look for early signs Be on the alert for early signs of heatstroke. These include rapid breathing, increased heart rate, dry mucous membranes, depression, and increased body temperature. Tip A dog's normal body temperature is between 100 and 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit. If the dog is suffering from moderate heatstroke, the temperature is between 104 and 106. If the temperature exceeds 109 degrees, severe organ damage occurs. Step 2: Take the dog to a veterinarian Take the dog to a veterinarian if it shows signs of early-stage heat stroke. A dog with moderate heatstroke can recover within an hour if given prompt first aid and veterinary care. Step 3: Look for late-stage symptoms Seek immediate veterinary assistance if the dog shows signs of late-stage heatstroke. These include collapse, pale mucous membranes, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, and coma. Severe heatstroke often results in death. Did You Know?
