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
-Increased heart rate
-Diarrhea or vomiting
-Loss of consciousness
What to do if you suspect a dog is suffering heatstroke:
-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.
