    When dogs suffer from heat stroke, the brain and nervous system will be seriously damaged. So even if the owner uses cold water to reduce the temperature of the dog to normal value, he still needs to send the dog to the hospital for a comprehensive examination.

    1. Prepare more water basins, because even if you prepare a bucket of water for your dog, it may be spilled by the naughty dog. Therefore, as a careful owner, we should prepare more water at home so that the dog can drink it if he wants.

    2. Avoid exposing the dog to the sun in the hot sun. Try to place the dog in a place with air circulation and avoid the sun. If necessary, turn on the electric fan at any time, or turn on the air conditioner for the dog who is extremely afraid of heat.

    3. Dog house, garage, yard or other simple buildings or shelters can be good shade places for dogs. But in contrast, the temperature of these places will rise quickly. As a careful owner, you can install a thermometer in these places and observe the temperature changes at any time. Or you can experience it on your own. If you feel uncomfortable, the dog who is afraid of heat will be even more unbearable.

    4. For a car parked in the sun, the temperature in the car will rise rapidly in a few minutes, so the owner must not let the dog stay alone in the car in the hot sun, unless you want to see a “hot dog” when you come back. If you only get off for a short time, park in the shade, open some windows to keep the air flowing, and try to return within 5 minutes.

    5. In the cool weather, even if the dog’s exercise volume is larger, it may not be exhausted. However, in the hot summer, the dog’s exercise volume must be significantly reduced to avoid the dog’s vigorous exercise in the hot and humid weather. When the dog needs to rest, it must rest, and it is not up to the dog’s temperament to exercise uncontrollably.

    6. Wearing a long coat, not only others look at the heat, but also dogs wear it. Therefore, regular hair trimming for long haired dogs will make the dogs easy to dissipate heat. However, pay attention to the length and style of trimming. If it is too short or ugly, the dogs will be embarrassed to go out.

    7. When the weather is hot, try to avoid taking dogs on the street. If you must take it to the street, you’d better use the traction belt. Try not to put it in an airtight pet bag. The best time to go out is at dusk. If your dog is very afraid of heat, you can take a small umbrella with him to shade the sun, or take a watering can to spray some water on him to cool down.
