Hot Car Hazard
Signs of Heatstroke include:
- Difficulty breathing/sudden rapid breath
- A blank or anxious stare
- Abnormally red gums and tongue
- Disorientation or sudden collapse
If you pet is overheated, take action immediately!
Immerse, cover, or rub your pet with cool (not cold or ice) water to lower their body temperature while taking your pet immediately to a veterinarian. Even if it seems as if your pet has recovered, it is necessary to check for internal damage.
If you see an animal in imminent danger, call 911.
Please share this information with anyone you can! Feel free to print out copies of our flier, or you can request copies by calling Trisha Trinco at (312) 645-8015.
