I think you should consult a vet. What were the symptoms your dog displayed and how long after did the dog recover?

Quote:
A dog suffering from heatstroke will display several signs:

* Rapid panting

* Bright red tongue

* Red or pale gums

* Thick, sticky saliva

* Depression

* Weakness

* Dizziness

* Vomiting - sometimes with blood

* Diarrhea

* Shock

* Coma

Could she die from heat stroke....YES! And if this was in fact heat stroke delayed complications can exist. Especially if any of the last 4 symptoms occur.

Now....there could be other things that you mistakenly took for heat stroke such as EIC or hypoglcemia. I would recommend checking out the info on EIC to see if this is what your seeing from your dog.
