The dangers of pet heatstrokes rises right along with the hot summer temperatures, and this condition is also known as hyperthermia. Heatstroke is a result of extreme increases in core body temperatures caused by the body’s inability to ‘cool’ off in hot situations such as being left in hot vehicle. Even minutes in an uncirculated environment can increase temperatures by 20-30 degrees and cause potential fatal results in your beloved pet. Hyperthermia can lead to an array of physical discomforts and even organ failure without immediate treatment from an emergency veterinarian in Omaha.
