Heat stroke causes incredible damage. Affected animals will first show excitation, followed by loss of balance and seizures, as the blood vessels in the brain engorge. A coma will follow. Heart failure is common and many other changes in body organs occur. The animal is at grave risk.
Emergency first aid is vital and you will need to get to a vet quickly. While you are contacting your vet, cool the animal by placing it in a room temperature (not iced) water bath or by hosing it. Place the wet animal in front of the fan and apply ice packs to its head.
Your veterinarian will need to give medication to control any seizures and to prevent further damage being caused to the animal's brain. He or she may give it a water enema to reduce its body temperature. It is likely that your pet will be placed onto an intravenous drip. Your vet may also anaesthetise your pet to prevent seizures.
Heat stress is a major concern over summer but a little common sense is all that is required to help your pets keep their cool. Please be careful.

SEEING Eye Dog Iggy knows how to find his carer's golf balls in the ruff.
The 15-month-old Labrador is not only well-known on the green but also makes frequent trips to Malvern East's local cafes, supermarkets, card games and flicks.
For Iggy's carer Maureen Lyons taking on the volunteer role as a puppy carer for Seeing Eye Dogs Australia was an easy decision.
Mrs Lyons said she had always had Labradors as pets and wanted to help the organisation, which provides trained dogs to help people who are blind or have low vision.
She said in the 12 months she had had Iggy, he went everywhere with her.
"He loves to play chase but he's also a very calm and relaxed dog," Mrs Lyons said.
"he goes everywhere with me. He comes to golf once, sometimes twice, a week and walks round all 18 holes. He plays bridge and goes to the movies.
"I would definitely recommend being a career, it's really good and it's rewarding. You learn a lot about the dogs too."
Mrs Lyons said Iggy's future as a SEDA dog was fast approaching and though she knew he would one day leave she would be sad to see him go.
"But he's got a job to do," she said.
SEDA is in urgent need of puppy carers.
With all costs covered by SEDA, the puppy caring program requires volunteers to care for a puppy in their home from the age of eight weeks until they are about 12 months old.

Melbourne has recently crushed all hot weather records since the beginning of weather records in Melbourne, and this summer has been our hottest yet! Always keep in mind; The Pets Hotel is 100% air conditioned offering Day Stays for dogs and cats as well as Day Care every day of the week!
Whilst at home it is also important to keep them cool and hydrated to ensure their health and always keep in mind the weather conditions of each day.
Here are some tips to keep your four legged babies safe and cool when at home:
The saddest mistake of all is when a dog dies in a hot car.
The rules are simple. At this time of year, your dog should not travel with you if you are going to stop anywhere other than at your final destination. Many say "But I'm only going into the shop for a litre of milk - I'll be just a minute". The 'just a minute' extends very quickly if the shop is busy or if you happen to meet a talkative friend.
The highest temperatures are reached in cars of dark colour and with large glass areas. Hatchback cars are the worst, with temperatures quickly exceeding 70 degrees centigrade. This is lethal for any living being, including children.
Short nosed breeds of dogs, such as Bull Dogs, Pugs and the Pekingese, are very susceptible to heat stress. Obese dogs and cats are at risk too, especially small, fat dogs. Dogs or cats with poor circulation and dogs with any respiratory disease are also susceptible."
