Rhinelander, Wis. (WJFW) - Temperatures are high right now and that can be a problem for pets. A local veterinarian said its important to be extra careful with your animal companions during hot days.
Alison French works at Homestead Veterinary Care in Rhinelander. She says it is important to keep pets out of the sun during the hottest part of the day
It's better to exercise in the early morning or evening hours when its cool. Allison says certain breeds struggle more when its hot.
"Anytime they don’t seem quite right or they are unable to walk normally," said Allison French. "If they’re falling over, if they been in a hot vehicle for any length of time, they need to seek medical attention," she emphasized.
Dogs with short noses or snouts, like the boxer or bulldog, are especially prone to a heat stroke.
"That smushed in nose dog like pugs, frenchie bull dogs, boston terriers they really have a hard time in the heat and humidity," said Allison.
Allison says never leave your dog in the car on days like this one. Temperatures can rise to unbearable temperatures in minutes.
