Unlike humans, dogs eliminate heat by panting. Wouldn’t that be interesting if humans regulated their temperature that way too? (Weird.) However, when panting isn’t enough, their body temperature continues to rise. This can be fatal if not prevented or corrected.
Be sure to watch for excessive panting and signs of discomfort. Be aware of the temperature, and take preventative measures if possible.
Visit your vet if any of the above symptoms are occurring.
