Mind your dog during the heat wave!

I heard a vet on a radio talk-show today, advising all pet owners to keep their pets in a cool place. It's so easy, even too easy, to leave a pet like a dog indoors and forget to turn on a fan or the a.c. By the time the owner gets back home from work, he or she could find the dog in a coma. The dog should be taken to a vet immediately if that ever happens.

The vet also explained that animals feel hot temperatures more so than humans and that their bodies deal with high temperatures differently. Wish I knew how and could explain how, but I'm not a scientist or a vet.
