Los Angeles Animal Services is reminding pet owners take extra care of their dogs or cats during the expected extreme heat weather.
If your dog or cat breathes noisily and rapidly, has trouble swallowing, and looks distressed, he or she could be having a heatstroke, and you should get him or her out of the heat, apply cold, wet towels to the back of the head, cool off your pet and take him or her to the vet immediately. Don’t leave your pet alone in the car and keep a gallon of cool water and ice cubes in a bucket for your pet.
