hot/sunny and then into eveing when it was cooler he was still panting. Today his toileting is not as much he Is panting but agin hot/sunny and he will not drink.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 8 years ago

If the temperature is warm where the dog is, then panting can be completely normal. Dogs do not have the ability to perspire or sweat like humans do. Panting is one of their mechanism to release heat. So, panting could be normal in warm climate. There are times however where panting can be a sign of an underlying problem like a fever, pain or cardiopulmonary problems. I would recommend to have your veterinarian do a quick physical exam and if everything is normal, then his panting is normal.

 

If you have additional questions I will be glad to answer them.
