Thanks Jean..... with summer upon us, we ALL need to be more conscientious of heat stroke with our pets...

DO NOT leave them in cars, tents, enclosed non-air controlled situations.
BE CAREFUL extremely hot tar/pavement/concrete as this can burn the pads on their feet

Olesia, was owned by Izzy, a 35lb Spanish Water Dog (SWD), Diagnosed at 1.5 years old - TLI results 1.. Izzy passed away on February 13, 2020 at 15 years old. She lived with EPI for 13+1/2 years. It was because of Izzy that Epi4Dogs was started... she was the inspiration. May her legacy of helping others with EPI continue for as long as needed.........

Thank you Jean for posting this extremely important reminder. I had a Boston Terrier that I had to watch closely because of his smushed face - now I have a giant German Shepherd that I have to watch closely because he will run himself to death in the heat chasing bugs. I volunteer with rescue and can tell you even though there's shade sometimes it's still not enough.
