Immediately upon noticing any of these signs, bring your Beagle into an air-conditioned house. If you are away from home and cannot seek shelter inside, bring your dog into the shade.
Work to cool down your Beagle’s body. Do not use ice. Soak hand-towels in cool water, and place these on your Beagle. It can help to run a fan near your dog to displace the air. Note: If you are outside and unable to reach shelter, soak any extra clothing with water (another good reason to always bring along water) and place these on your dog.
Areas to focus on aside from the core body are the paws, groin area, and forelegs.
Offer cool water for your Beagle to drink; but control this so that your dog does not rapidly ingest a large quality at one time, which can lead to killer bloat.
Monitor your Beagle’s temperature. This is a good reason to have a canine thermometer as part of a first aid kit. Most veterinarians recommend working to bring body temp down to 103 before transporting a dog.
Seek vet care. Bring your Beagle to the vet after an episode of heat stress, even if you are able to stabilize your dog, since enduring this type of event puts a tremendous of stress on the body.
In the event of ongoing heat stroke, since this can be fatal, this requires veterinary treatment, which may include IV intervention and oxygen supplementation.
