  5. not applicable on April 28, 2021 at 12:08 am

    oh for goodness sake, just give the main symptoms to look out for not a wittering dialogue. This is the trouble with too many people on u tube who like the sound of their own voice

  6. Bernie Jaud on April 28, 2021 at 12:10 am

    It really breaks my heart , my dog chow just died today bcoz of heat stroke and theres nothing I can do about it coz im far away from him due to my job.

    What if our dog has natural black and pink gums? How will we know if they’re bright red or not?

  9. Herzelle JG on April 28, 2021 at 12:16 am

    My Chichi just died yesterday and still can’t move on. I assumed with the symptoms mentioned he had the same a day before and sad to say I wasn’t there to help her and save her. Also because of the pandemic no vet clinics is open to help her.

  10. THE MECHANIC on April 28, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Hose them down with cold water when they having heat stroke

  11. Gee Wiz on April 28, 2021 at 12:18 am

    My dog nearly died. Holding her on top of my portable ac and squirting half water half chicken stock saved her…. 😞 Sorry for all the people that posted here who’s dogs were not that lucky. My deepest deepest sympathies. I wasn’t even out with her for long. Careful in the heat. Specially if your dog is old with health issues, DO NOT stay out for long. Be safe everybody ❤️ 🙏

  12. Melissa Jackson on April 28, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Just lost my 3 yo Frenchton to heat stroke. Wish I’d seen this vid before! Thanks for this info! 😔

  13. neko16 on April 28, 2021 at 12:20 am

  16. Jay R on April 28, 2021 at 12:26 am

  17. StrawOnWalls on April 28, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Im on here because i think my dog just had 2 hear strokes while laying with me and so i put her on the floor in front of a fan and she fell asleep

  18. Mysterious Gamer on April 28, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Today I lost my Siberian husky due to heat stroke 😣😭

  19. Anita Hardesty on April 28, 2021 at 12:37 am

    Thank you for this video. I have 2 female 2 month old puppies and 2 male 4 year old dogs. I live in Arizona and its 110 outside right now. I do not let them outside except to go potty.

  20. Sierrah Tressel on April 28, 2021 at 12:41 am

    Had to put my dog down today from internal damage from heat stroke. Act fast! 😔

  21. Lin Lewis on April 28, 2021 at 12:42 am

    I also want to thank you for this particular video. Of course dog owners of any type of dog need to be aware of the dangers of excessive heat and/or humidity on their dogs. But owners of flat faced breeds such as Bulldogs and owners of dogs with thick double coats either short or long haired need to be especially vigilant. I live in a state with hot humid summers so my little 6 lb, 9 year old Pomeranian spends the daylight hours safely inside my air conditioned home. He gets a short walk in the morning and weather permitting he gets a slightly longer one in the cooler evening hours. Inside during the day we practice his tricks and work on some simple agility maneuvers.

  22. K M on April 28, 2021 at 12:44 am

    Very helpful, I was just thinking about this topic a couple days ago. Temperatures continue to break records every year in my state, and weather throughout the year in the U.S. overall is more and more inconsistent each year due to climate change, and spring ad summer only get hotter because of global warming.

    My husky just died of a heat stroke and the doctor doesn’t know what he got I was so so angry and I’m almost murder the doctor 😭😭😭😡😡😡

  24. A on April 28, 2021 at 12:44 am

    I lost my 4 year old dog yesterday. 😭

  25. Francis Xyooj on April 28, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Glad i saw this in time. Gonna chill for a little bit now since it’s getting hot. I asked to much of him and saw these exact signs.

  26. Tesla Fans on April 28, 2021 at 12:48 am

    My dog has all of those but it happed at night

  27. Daniel Dominguez on April 28, 2021 at 12:48 am

    How long does it take for a dog to recover from heatstroke?

    Mine unfortunately had one and was seizing up and thankfully we were able to help him but now I’m kindve scared to take him for his walks because of that.

  28. Erin Leigh on April 28, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Thank you so much for this video. My dog had a close one today, which is why I’m here. She is deathly scared of water so I brought her inside, she layed on my bed, and I turned on a fan. Gradually, her panting and drooling stopped and she is returning to normal. I am using this as an opportunity to educate myself more about this subject so that if it ever happens again I will know what to do. Thank you!😊🐶🐾

  29. Our Pets Health on April 28, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Thanks Ken for inviting me back! I’m a bit jealous of the hot weather you’ve been having, it’s winter here in NZ and -2 degreesC this morning (although I guess that’s not really that cold for a Canadian!). Enjoy the sun everyone but stay cool + safe and if there is any chance that your dog is overheating stop and take action straight away. Any questions just ask!

  30. FluffyHyena Dreams on April 28, 2021 at 12:51 am

    I’m so sorry for your loss, my dog died just last night of heat stroke his temperature was over 109 and we caught it too late because it was late at night when me and my sister Heard a loud banging noise is coming from downstairs,we soon to find out he’s vomited everywhere he had a seizure before we got down there is what we think because he already had bitten his tongue and he was bleeding from his mouth while while it was foam coming from his mouth , while we’re trying to get the car ready for him to take him to the vet he seized really bad then The whole way there he was just seizing in the back of the car. The vet basically told us that he has brain damage from seizing and his temperature was over 109 so even if we did go and debt for the procedure to keep them alive he most likely would’ve died anyways so we just had to put him down.

  31. Yogesh Mahajan on April 28, 2021 at 12:55 am

    Hi there,
    You guys have an amazing info. Can I use this info for people who own a dog for their awareness please ?


  32. Roland Ramirez on April 28, 2021 at 12:56 am

    I’ve been going on walks with my golden retriever for about three months now and several times we have returned to our house and she just pants for a few minutes. I take her indoors to lay on the cold tile and put a fan in front of and give her lots of water. Aside from the panting and lots of drooling that’s all she pretty much does. But I’m puzzled because she usually drools a lot when she gets excited and goes out for car rides with the windows down. Ever since she was a puppy she drooled a lot and pants a lot after running a bit. I’m just worried I’ve fucked up my dog and given her brain damage. Do you think I should take my dog to the vet to get scans? Or am I being a paranoid dog parent?

  34. korin stark on April 28, 2021 at 12:57 am

    Omg my dog has a heat stroke 😔

  35. SAMMY’S WORLD on April 28, 2021 at 12:59 am

    It’s amazing how ignorant pet owners can be about this. Yea animals get hot too and overheat just like ppl even much quicker because they don’t sweat like us. Especially if it’s a long eared or long haired dogs or pushed in faces has it worst. Fastest way to cool animals down is immersing their paws in cold water and wrapping their bodies in cool baby swaddles. I also take those pet ear cleaning wipes which I keep in the frig and wipe my dog’s ears down with it when he over heats and he loves it!

  36. Milk Komson on April 28, 2021 at 12:59 am

    Thank you for the info! May I ask how long it usually takes a dog to recover from a heat stroke? My dog had been going through it for a bout 3-4 days but it was only yesterday that we found this is a heat stroke. I wish I’d known it sooner. What I’m doing now is give my dog a wipe with towel soaked with cool water every once in a while to lower her fever, and moved her into an air-conditioned room during the day.

    I’d really appreciate your reply 🙏🏼

  37. Daniel Erene on April 28, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Just lost my dog yesterday coz of heat stroke

  38. Jinalyn Mallari on April 28, 2021 at 1:00 am

    i lost my dog today. maybe the cause of death is heatsroke

  39. Madison Sage on April 28, 2021 at 1:02 am

    It’s been extremely hot here lately. Like, 109° out here! My brother walks his dogs down to a field not too far from our house. And every time he comes back, his dogs are panting a lot. I mean, he takes water with him and poures it on their heads, but I don’t think that helps them much. And I’ve told him to stop walking them midday, and only do it in the evening or early in the morning. But he won’t listen!!! Is there any advice that you could give me? Like, maybe scare him into listing to me? I just want to stop him before it’s too late.

  40. Erica C on April 28, 2021 at 1:03 am

    1:20 beginning to explain – youre welcome

  41. Predator-Hunter - on April 28, 2021 at 1:03 am

    Lost my beautiful dog today. Arrived home and somehow he locked himself inside one of my bathrooms. When I found him after work he was barely breathing. Died a short while later.
