Beat the Heat

According to Dr. Murray, "the symptoms of overheating in pets include excessive panting or difficulty breathing, increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, mild weakness, seizures, and an elevated body temperature of over 104 degrees."

"Animals with flat faces, like pugs and Persian cats, are more susceptible to heat stroke since they cannot pant as effectively," she says. "These pets, along with the elderly, the overweight, and those with heart or lung diseases, should be kept cool in air-conditioned rooms as much as possible.
