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.

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
