        Heat stroke in pets caused by the pet's body temperature rising more than 40 degrees Celsius quickly and unable to cool the outside similar to heat stroke in humans. This causes pets such as dogs and cats to become hot and tired. The cause may be an infectious disease that causes a high fever or leaving pets in the car or outdoors for long periods of time in extremely hot weather.

        Heat strokes don't only happen during the summer but pets can still develop heat stroke. If in an area with high temperatures and sultry.

        Dogs and cats are not evacuated through sweat like humans but there is a cooling process through breathing and paws. If it is in an environment with high temperature, sweltering, or inadequate ventilation will show symptoms of heat stroke. This will be harmful to the liver, kidneys, heart and brain.

        Heat stroke symptoms can be noticed by pets sticking their tongue out too much, tiredness, shortness of breath, rapid pulse, restlessness, staggered gait, intense thirst sticky or stretchy saliva, tongue-gills are dark red, dry gums or nose, staggering, dizziness, frequent vomiting, acute diarrhea, lie still with all four legs tensed. The body has a high temperature. There may also be nosebleeds or convulsions. If the symptoms are severe, death may occur.

        Proper first aid when pets get heatstroke is to lower the animal's body temperature, but not to drop it too quickly. Allowing pets to be in a well-ventilated place, remove the collar or clothing. Use a cloth dampened with room temperature water to wipe your body, armpits, paws, and groin for cooling. If they can still drink water, give your pet plenty of water but beware of choking. Massage the legs to stimulate the circulatory system. Then rushed to the hospital immediately.
