Please send Winston the Paws of Prayer.

Hello Friends,
This morning, Winston went into heat distress.  He was panting and panting and I couldn't get him to stop.  He had some water and the water didn't stay down.  I thought he was chocking, but I saw nothing.  I immediately drove him to the Vet and they took right in and told me to come back later today.  He is still there now and I just received a phone call and received some very good news.  Even though they had to intubate him, his temperature shot up to over 106 and his throat was beginning to close.  After they got him to cool down and assisted his breathing, he is going to fine.  I'm going back later today to pick him up while Scooter has his physical.  They think he got over heated and he was only outside this morning for about 15-20 minutes at the most before 9AM.  I would have never have thought it was too hot at that time for him, but now I know.  They said that Winston must stay in the air condition and take it easy.  So, please send him the Paws of Prayer so that he will recovery fully.

Wow, that is amazing that he would react that quickly. We don't get to stay out in the heat long either. Paws crossed for him to be OK. Is there any chance he got bit by a bug?

Wow...poor Winston! We hope he's feeling much better at this point in the day now! Scary to think that being outside for 15-20 minutes can overheat a dog! Riley is a Blue Heeler (like yours) and with her dark coat and double coat, she gets hot quickly. She always finds the shade in the yard...even on days that I don't think it's that hot outside. It's hard for us to judge the heat because we aren't wearing a fur coat!

Glad to hear he's going to be fine. I had heat exhaustion one time when I was a lifeguard and it was miserable, so I can sort of commiserate with Winston. I bet he'll be happy to get home!
