Don't forget about your pets in this extreme hot weather. Just like humans, they need plenty of water to stay hydrated and avoid heatstroke. The U.S. Humane Society website lists several signs of heatstroke, including heavy panting, glazed eyes, a rapid heartbeat, restlessness, excessive thirst, dizziness, and vomiting.

If you think your pet is suffering a heat stroke put a cold towel on its head, let it drink small amounts of water, and then take the pet to see a veterinarian.
