Hi there, you are through to Dr Linda

Heat stroke is a true emergency and can prove quickly fatal if not treated appropriately

Your dog needs immediate vet care

Do you know where your closest 24 hour clinic is? If so, contact them right away

Put a damp towel (not freezing cold) on him on the way and keep him in a cool area, offering water to drink until you are at the clinic.
