Signs of Hypothermia in Dogs

All pets can get hypothermia in cold weather but short haired, young/old, skinny and diabetic dogs are more susceptible. Look for the following signs if you think your dog might be suffering.

  • Sluggishness
  • Shallow, slow breathing
  • Unresponsiveness
  • Excessive whining & shivering
  • Anxiousness
  • Dilated blood vessels
  • Low body temperature
  • Drop in pulse
  • Drop in blood pressure
  • Unconsciousness
  • Death occurs eventually

If your dog shows any of these signs get them to the veterinarian right away.
