A Message from Lexington Animal Care & Control. 


SAFETY ALERT: Extreme temperatures are projected for July.

Once a dog’s body temperature reaches above 105 degrees, there can be irreversible organ and cellular damage. Flat-nosed breeds, breeds with thick coats, and puppies are at an increased risk.


Animal Control recommends:

-Pets be kept at home; indoors in a cool environment

-Avoid time outside during the heat of the day

-Limit walks and outside activities, if possible

-Make sure your pets are secure and they are wearing visible and permanent ID


Symptoms of heatstroke:

-Open mouth panting

-Thick saliva


-Increased heart rate

-Diarrhea or vomiting

-Loss of consciousness


What to do if you suspect a dog is suffering heatstroke:

-Offer water

-Move to a cool environment

-Wet the pads of their feet with cold water

-Take them to a vet as soon as possible

Animal Control will prioritize any heat-related calls. If you see an animal in distress, please contact them immediately at 859-255-9033.
