Our rescue vet just called to ask us to get in touch with all French Bulldog Meetup Members.
They've had a heartbreaking day after putting two English Bulldogs down due to heat stroke.
It is simply TOO HOT for our bulldogs right now. The quick temperature spike that we are currently experiencing means the dogs have not been able to acclimate to the warmer weather as they normally would.
Heat exhaustion and stroke can happen in SECONDS. They should go outside to go to the bathroom and then right back in to a cool house.
Obviously, leaving them in a car "just for a minute" is out of the question.
This horrible death is easily avoided. Buy them some new toys and play with them in a cool house to get out any energy.
They are relying on you to do what is best for them and your responsibility as the owner of a flat-faced breed is to be excessively cautious during the warm months.
Here's to a great summer with NO Frenchie deaths due to heat related injuries.
