Heat exhaustion can precede a heatstroke. Here are signs of heat exhaustion. Recognizing these may save a life...
- Dark-colored urine (a sign of dehydration)
- Muscle or abdominal cramps
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Pale skin
- Profuse sweating
- Rapid heartbeat
Pets also are at risk for heat exhaustion and heat stroke. They do not sweat through their skin and fur, but instead cool themselves by their foot-pads, and panting and through their noses and mouths. Keep your pets out of the heat and be sure they have plenty of water.
