Animals can quickly become overheated and suffer heatstroke, writes veterinarian Kathy Gagliardi, especially overweight and long-haired animals and brachycephalic breeds. Heatstroke progresses rapidly and can be fatal, so Dr. Gagliardi emphasizes the importance of prevention as well as recognizing symptoms. Owners can begin cooling overheated animals while en route to a veterinarian's office for emergency treatment, but it's important not to try to cool them too quickly or they may have more trouble recovering.
