Man’s best friend

So we had a scary situation with our 4 and a half year old poodle last night. See he loves, absolutely loves tennis balls and thinks they are the greatest thing for dogs and he wants nothing more than to have them thrown so he can chase them. We started throwing them around inside the house and you know how challenging that could be. So we took the game outside and played keep away with him for about 20 minutes around 8:30pm.

Once we got back in the house he was very out of sorts and could not relax or settle down. We had mistakenly thought a quick game of catch in the evening would be fine even it was very hot earlier in the day. Sadly it was not. Since he couldn’t seem to control his temperature or stop heavy panting, we put him in the truck and took him for a drive with the AC on full and a freezer pack to cool him down. Thankfully he recovered quickly once he was in the truck and I don’t know what we would do ( specially my son) if anything happened to him.

So here is what to look out for as signs of heat stroke in dogs, heavy panting, fever over 103, elevated hear rate, excessive drooling, agitation, nausea and or diarrhea, muscle cramping, seizures, weakness, dazed, loss of balance and collapse. Our puppy definitely had a few of those and thankfully we caught it before it got too serious. Please pay attention to your puppies on these hot summer days.

Today I am thankful for the quick and immediate action of my wife to treat our dog, puppichino’s from Starbucks and now that he has had a good nights sleep seems back to normal.
