Guidelines for prevention, recognition, and immediate treatment of heat injury in dogs has remained stagnant over the past several decades. Despite this condition being one of the most common emergencies of both companion and working dogs, little effort has been given towards research and advancement of prevention or treatment strategies for this often preventable, and fatal condition. A recent in-depth look at the available scientific evidence shows that common prevention and treatment guidelines are not only lacking evidence, but also contradict the evidence where available.
