Can heat stroke cause death in dogs?
Every year, hundreds of canine friends in the US suffer from heat-related illnesses, including heat stroke. Never leave your dog inside a parked car or outdoors, as dogs are extremely sensitive to extreme temperatures, especially on a hot day. On an 80-degree day, a car's interior can reach 100 degrees in just 10 minutes, putting your dog at risk of heat exhaustion. Any dog, regardless of breed, age, or gender, can be affected. Even fit dogs, and those with weak immune systems are at risk. Be vigilant and protect your furry friend from the dangers of overheating.
