Pet Talk - Caring for pets in the heat

This week on Pet Talk, we're talking about how to care for your dogs in the heat.

Alicia Robinson with the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine appeared on BVTM to discuss recognizing and dealing with overheating.

Three common instances in which pets are prone to heat strokes are when they're left outside without shade or water, when they are exercising in the heat and when they're left in a hot car.

Symptoms of heat stroke include excessive panting, a bright red tongue, vomiting and diarrhea, or acting dizzy and weak.

If you see these symptoms, bring the pet in immediately, point fans at him or her and pour water on them.
