How are dogs managing the heat this summer?

Dogs like Human beings can suffer from heat strokes and the summer temperatures has been a problem for all of us. I took my puppy to the JSPCA for a worm shot there was a sign inside telling us how to spot signs of a heat stroke in dogs. I read through all warning signs and started to feel worried. Could Ori be experiencing a heat stroke? She was panting her mouth was always open I gave her water twice and she didn’t seem thirsty.

 Stony Hill is much cooler than Kingston and so it was easy to see that she wasn’t panting all the time maybe it wasn’t a heat stroke but she must have been really very hot out there.What is life like for dogs living in Kingston or urbanised spaces in Jamaica? How are we helping to keep cool?
