Make sure you keep your dog cool and well-hydrated during the hot, summer months. A dog’s normal body temperature lies between 100.5 and 102.5 degrees, which is the temperature of a fever in humans. Dog body temperatures rising to 105 are dangerous.
Dogs do not sweat. They pant to release heat and regulate their body temperature.
Give him small sips of cold water. Don’t let him gulp it down which could lead to bloating.
Never leave your dog in a hot, parked car, even with the windows open. The inside temperature can rise to 160 degrees very quickly.
Another consideration for your pet’s health on July 4th is the noise from fireworks. Some dogs could care less. Some bark at
the banging to protect everyone from the intruding sounds. And some will head for the hills out of anxiety and fear.
If your dog will be with you outside at a park, make sure to keep him on a leash if you do not know how he will react. People might set off fireworks anywhere and at anytime.
