Even with temperatures skyrocketing, there’s never a dull day at Dewdney (even though sometimes we would like to be in the pool instead of at work!)

Hot Vet Goes Viral!

Ok, so the title may be a little misleading, but we were shocked at how far our video has spread, we made the front page of the Huffington Post!

Dogs, unlike people, have no ability to sweat. They cool themselves down by panting and can only cool themselves when the temperature is lower than the temperature of their body. As the video shows, temperatures can rise beyond the dog’s ability to cool in less than 2 minutes. Different breeds react differently. Small breeds with high surface area heat up quicker, larger dogs slower. Smushed face breeds like pugs and bulldogs do not even have the ability to pant efficiently and are at serious risk. Throw in a dog jumping around and barking and an animal can die in less than 10 minutes. Keep in mind, I always had the ability to just open the door and step out. Dogs dont get that option.

Hungry Rescued Hummingbird

This hummingbird didn’t want to eat, so we devised a method of stimulating her appetite!
