Hot Tips On How to Prevent Heatstroke in Dogs

As veterinarians, it's heartbreaking that every summer we see several cases of heatstroke. These are dogs that are members of the family. They are loved and cared for by well-intentioned owners that dote on them.

Don't Forget Your Pet! Crucial Tips For Disaster Preparedness For Your Faithful Friend
