We can’t really tell if it is a heat rash, allergic reaction, or an over-exaggerated reaction to the new carpet. I have a dog who doesn’t respond to heat and seems to get hot if he is close to the TV or even if he is running around outside. However, I have had to take him to the vet twice for this since he has a hard time breathing. He is only 5 years old and has a severe anxiety disorder.
When I first got him, I was worried about it, but then I put him on the bed and he started to act normal and eat and so on. I have been told that he has been using the couch as a bed because he likes it that way.
The vet did find a possible problem, but it was too late. I had to take him to the vet to have it looked at. He’s on the waiting list for a new heart. I think it is still too early to tell if there is anything else going on with this dog’s head.
The problem is that our dogs are very sensitive to temperature. A very small amount of heat can trigger a seizure, so we should only ever get them out of the bath if the water is ice cold. It is not uncommon for dogs to get a panic attack while in the bathwater or at the vet, so that often puts them at the vet’s office.
I know this feeling. My dog has it too. The vet told me his head is hot and it makes his teeth vibrate. The vet has a solution for that, it seems, and it’s not even the same thing as the hot water. He says he can turn the water off and let it cool while he takes a deep breath and inhales. Then he turns the water back on and lets him breathe out a small amount.
The vet and I started chatting about it earlier today. He said that he can turn the water off, but he needs to let the air out. After he takes a breath, he turns the water back on again. Then he takes another breath and inhales. He does this for a third time. Then he turns the water off again. Then he takes a final breath and lets it out.
He’s telling us that the water makes his body feel warm and moist. He says he can feel warmth and moistness throughout his body. He says he feels like he’s getting a warm feeling in his chest and that it’s starting to spread up his body. We’ve actually talked about this a lot this week. We’ve been talking about how some people feel like a little bit of warmth is coming with the water, and that we should just let it go.
But that’s not what hes doing. Hes letting it go for his own reasons. Hes trying to convince us that hes not feeling any warmth. Hes telling us that hes not getting any warmth. Hes trying to tell us that hes feeling hot. Hes saying hes feeling warm and moist. Hes telling us that his body is getting warmer and moist. Hes saying hes getting a warmth feeling. Hes saying hes getting a bit of moisture. Hes telling us hes getting a bit of heat.
A lot of people use warmth and moistness as a way to explain their feelings, even if they don’t know why they are feeling them. But, for dogs, the two words “warm,” “moist,” and “heat” all refer to the same thing–temperature. The fact that we talk about heat and moisture in the same way is just one more sign that we are wired that way.
We all have body heat, and its like air conditioning that lets us breathe and cool down. But dogs do more than just cool off. We are also able to transfer heat from our body onto our clothes and fur. The reason we call it heat is that we have three different types of sweat glands. The first one is located on the top of the dog’s back, underneath the tailbone. The second one is located on the back of the dog’s tail.
