Can you give dogs or cats ice cubes in hot weather?
Heatstroke is fatal in dogs, and once a dog shows the signs of heatstroke the damage is already done, which is why it is so important to prevent it from the outset.
Signs of heatstroke in dogs include collapse, excessive panting, and dribbling.
Dogs cannot sweat like humans so they rely on panting and releasing heat through their paw pads to get through the hot weather.
If you are concerned about your furry friend, move them to a cool place, preferably with a draught, wet their coat with cool – not freezing – water, and contact your vet immediately.
