MILWAUKEE -- Remember your furry friends this weekend. Veterinarians at Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists remind you to introduce your dog to the warmth slowly.

Play in the shade and in cooler times of the day to reduce the chance of overheating and getting paw burns.

Also, recognize the chance for heat stroke. Panting or gulping for air for longer than three minutes and long, stringy saliva or diarrhea are signs you may need to call your veterinarian right away.
