inappropriate for the extreme heat and humidity we have today. Likewise, even a few minutes left in a
hot car could spell death for an animal. Signs of heat frustration, heat exhaustion and heat stroke are similar in animals as they are for humans, although it develops much more quickly. If there is an animal out in the heat who looks sluggish, is panting heavily (any cat panting is abnormal), or who has passed out needs care immediately. If it is safe to do so, move the animal to a cool location, offer cool water, wet down the foot pads and find the owner and a veterinarian.
Remember to take care of yourself first! If you aren't safe, you can't help anyone else. Stay hydrated and alert the proper professionals to anything above and beyond the scope of CERT.
