How can you tell if your dog is too hot?

When your dog starts showing signs of heat exhaustion, that means it’s time to cool off and slow down. Common signs of heat exhaustion in dogs include:

-         Increased, heavy panting
-         Loose tongue sticking outside their mouth
-         Gums that are bright pink in color
-         Lethargy, slow movements, and not wanting to move

Avoid spending time outdoors during the hottest time of the day (11am to 3pm), make sure your pup has access to lots of water, and stay in the shade whenever possible.

Sometimes I ignore dad at the dog park to play in the sun and not drink water. Then on the way home I’m so hot I need to plop on top of the bushes. #overheating
