Hi, I can help you with your question today. I do recommend leaving him at the hospital, and there are several reasons. One moment and I will continue typing them to you.

Although his body temperature has returned to normal, we can still see severe effects from his hyperthermia. Dogs can go into a state of DIC or "disseminated intravascular coagulation", in which blood clots can begin to form throughout the body. This can cause blockage of blood vessels and damage to any tissues in the area. We can also see brain swelling, or cerebral edema. The kidneys may fail, and we can also see serious damage to the GI tract. I would keep him in the hospital on IV fluids, monitor his urine output, blood pressure, neurologic condition and other vital signs. Additional treatments will depend on what we see on tests such as coagulation profiles.

Should I leave him just for monitoring or should I go through blood tests, xrays, etc?
Dog Veterinarian: brisadog,
 replied 3 years ago
At a minimum, I recommend clotting tests and additional screening bloodwork (a CBC and serum chemistry).
