Kids’ Corner Fun Facts





Hot weather in the summer can spell danger for our furry companions!

Even the healthiest pet can suffer from dehydration, sunburn, or heat stroke if overexposed to the heat-and heat stroke can be fatal if not treated promptly.


What are the warning signs?

 Excessive panting or difficulty breathing

 Increased heart or respiratory rate


 Mild weakness

 Collapse / falling down 


 Vomiting or Diarrhea

 Elevated body temperature of over 104◦




FACT:   Short-nosed breeds such as pugs, bulldogs, or boxers
are more prone to overheating since they cannot pant effectively.




FACT:  Even on a mild day, the temperature in a
car can quickly rise to more than 30 degrees higher
than the outside temperature. 

When it is 90 degrees outside, the temperature
inside a car can quickly reach a deadly 120 degrees
in a matter of minutes!
