Customer Question

Our 18 mo. old dog is drooling and lethargic and acting like she is drunk. My son says that the only thing she might have gotten into is some food debris that might be fermented.

She is coming around some now. My son thinks it may have been a heat stroke. She is super hyper and played hard in the yard for a few hours. I will take her to her vet tomorrow. Thank you!

Can you please take her temperature and let me know what it is? The Drooling is a sign of nausea. Heat can be very dangerous.Joan
