(Las Vegas, Nevada) Triple digits days are here and that means dangerous days for the family pet.

Veterinarians warn that the hot, hot weather can be very unhealthy for dogs and other household animals. They face the treat of heat stroke, sunburn and burned foot pads.

Debbie White of the Lone Mountain Animal Hospital says never leave pets unattended in hot cars, ensure ample shade, water and cooling stations outdoors. Walk your dog early in the morning and keep them inside as much as possible.

Symptoms of heat stroke include anxiety, panting, weakness and purple gums.  If you suspect your pet is suffering from a heat stroke rush them to a Vet immediately.
