This dog’s trip to the parlour ended in the worst way possible: 2-year-old Fendi died due to a heat stroke.
Heatstroke is a severe and potentially fatal condition for dogs.
It occurs when a dog’s body temperature rises significantly above the normal range of 101 to 102.5°F.
Dogs are unable to regulate their body temperature as efficiently as humans, making them vulnerable to overheating.
If you suspect your dog is suffering from heatstroke, it’s crucial to act quickly - move the dog to a cooler environment immediately
Apply cool, not cold, water to reduce the dog’s body temperature.
Offer the dog cool water to drink but do not force it.
After spending more than an hour in the grooming van, Fendi was returned to Jorge in a state of distress, panting and unresponsive.
Despite immediate efforts to cool her down and urgent veterinary care, Fendi’s life could not be saved.
She claimed to have provided water to the distressed dog and suggested that Fendi had an underlying health issue.
This tragic incident underscores the need for increased awareness among pet owners and grooming services about the dangers of heatstroke.
Fendi’s untimely death serves as a stark reminder of the need for stricter regulations and safety protocols for pet grooming services.
