Summer Dangers: Heatstroke

What's the most common cause of heatstroke in dogs? If you said "being in a hot car" you'd be mistaken. 75% of cases of heatstroke are caused by exercising on a hot day. Today and the rest of the week is going to be a scorcher, so, as well as not leaving your dog in a hot car, it's vital that you avoid walking your dog during the hottest parts of the day, and stick to times when it's cooler, such as early morning or in the evening.
