Here are the dog breeds that are least resistant to heat

Warmer temperatures have arrived, and pets should not be neglected at this time.

PETCO Chief Veterinarian Dr. Whitney Miller shared her thoughts on which dog breeds are most vulnerable during heat waves with Fox News.

The Texas-based vet told US media that dogs are less resistant to hot temperatures, especially because of their paws and fur.

“Animals with long, thick coats are more susceptible to heat stroke,” he explains.

Miller suggests paying attention to your dog’s panting, drooling, deep, rapid breathing, weakness, disorientation and vomiting.

“If your pet shows these signs on a hot day, take them to a cool, well-ventilated area and give them cool (not cold) water,” says the vet.

If you can’t get your pet’s temperature down, she recommends seeing a professional.
