Keep ’em Cool: Spotting Heat Distress in Dogs | Jeffco Parks

Be on the watch for signs of heat distress in dogs, including rapid panting, bright red tongue, thick saliva and dizziness. To keep dogs cool, offer water frequently and wet their paw pads, pits and bellies with cool water. During the hottest part of the year, consider ending park adventures by 10 a.m. or starting after 4 p.m.
