My dog had heatstroke a few days ago. We were able to cool him down right away but and took him to the vet yesterday. His temp was normal, he is eating and drinking but is somewhat lethargic....is this normal? He is now in a cool place and drinking normally. Does it take several days to get over the effects of heat stroke?

My dog had a heat stroke about a month in a half ago. I didn't take him to the vet because I thought he was fine and then about a week later I noticed he was having trouble walking at times so I decided to take him and the vet did a blood test on him and said he seemed fine they did give him two medications (Tramadol & Rimedyl) He got worse as soon as I starting giving him the meds. He started vomiting and had diarraha with blood in it. He could barely walk. I immediately went online and researched the meds the vet gave him to find that Rimedyl was not safe. It wasn't even FDA approved for humans and I found countless people that had lost their pets to this drug... Now that's SCARY. I immediately quit giving him the meds and he slowly started getting better. I am so thankful that I took the time to do the research or I know my dog wouldn"t have made it. I no longer take my dogs to this vet because they didn't even let me know the risks of the meds( some of the side effects of this medicine are seizures, coma and death... Now that is scary and not worth the risk to me.)

Thank you for this information. I have a friend, and his dog got loose. So being hot and summertime in the high 80's 90's we knew what to look for when the dog returned home.

well since ALABAMA decides to get 113 heat indexes for the bast weeks; my rottweiler had a heat stoke yesterday and he's doing awful :( he got to come home from the vet yesterday but he's just been laying ever since and it's been 36 hours since he had it. i'm so terribly worried about him and i'm afraid of the long term affects now. he starts howling if he has to walk. it's so sad.

My dog Prissy (daschund) had a heat stroke yesterday. I did not realize what was happening she was outside for 30 min. or less @ 10:30 in the morning. I called her and she didnt come so I figured the kids let her in, so I checked under my bed thats her private alone time area. Well I went back outside and I seen her laying by the house and I said "Priss" come on, she didnt move! I ran over to her and it was like she was a limp noodle she looked at me though. I picked her up and she had yellow stuff coming out of her mouth (real thick and mucusy) I ran inside and wiped it off with cool water from my hand put a cool washrag on her neck and flew to the vet. The vet asked about poison, snake bite,ect. I said no,no,no so he assumed Heat Stroke. I feel lost, she is still at the vet they gave her iv fluids and she swoll up, they said thats normal from the fluids. Today they gave her some white stuff to coat her stomach but she threw it up (vomiting) she has bloody diarraha they also gave her some yellow iv bag of something it was kinda thick. She is moving around today but very shaky! That was early this morning, at noon they gave it to her again, and they told me so far she kept that down, but they close @ noon on wed. so I have to wait til morning to hear anything else on my baby. The vet keeps saying stuff about her intestines the lining could be damage, thats why she bleeding. I dont understand!! What does this mean I Love that dog more than anybody could ever know, she just turned 12 and I know shes older but its not her time!! I need her, is there anything else someone could tell me PLEASE!! I want her to have everthing she needs. When theres intestinal problems, can they be fixed??

A woman in Lake Butler, FL, uses the Spigot Freeze Preventer (SFP) on her outdoor spigot to provide cool, fresh water for her dog all year long—critical during the hot summer months. It comes on 1/2 and 1 GPH flows. Read more stories at the
