Summer: Global Warming Alert For Safety Of Dogs

Global warming is a growing concern for the safety of dogs during the summer months and other hot temperature seasons.

Warmer temperatures are known to cause dogs seriously dehydrated owing to overheating, which can be life-threatening.

Owners need to be aware of the signs of heat exhaustion such as excessive panting, pale gums, or weakness. 

Global warming has been coming strong and this summer is predicted to be much more hard.

Indeed, global warming has been coming very strong with each passing year.

At this point, it might be too late to come back and this summer might even be harder.

Consequently, a veterinarian has warned owners of the nine dog breeds most likely to be affected by heatstroke this summer.

Social media star Cat has gained more than 325,000 followers on TikTok and more than 31,000 followers on Instagram by sharing veterinary advice.

The vet shot a video last year in which he looked at all breeds of dogs that often struggle in hot weather. 

The video references a 2020 study by Vet Compass that found that Chinese lion dogs are 17 times more likely to suffer from heat stroke than the average dog.

"This is hardly surprising given their slightly flattened faces and enormous fur put them at a double disadvantage," the expert said.

English Bulldogs are in second place, while third and fourth places are French Bulldogs and French Mastiffs.

Although many celebrities try to raise awareness about global warming nothing changes and it looks like things will get much harder.


Given this type of life-threatening warning, it is intuitive to picture giving dogs access to plenty of cool water and shade during this season and they need to be monitored for signs of heat exhaustion.

Additionally, this is the time to ensure that strenuous activities like exercising are limited to only morning hours or evenings.

Also, pavements that can be too hot for their paws need to be avoided.
