I have a black lab mix that was outside too in 89 degree

Customer Question

I have a black lab mix that was outside too long in 89 degree weather. He was not locked out but did not return when called. When I found him he had thrown up and was panting excessively. I brought him into the air conditioning immediately and wiped him down with wet towels. His breathing has returned to normal and he has drunk some water that he has not vomited. We are probably sixty miles from the nearest vet and I am not from this area
