Know The Signs Of Heatstroke In Pets

Monday, July 27th, 2015

Heat stroke is a serious condition that unfortunately occurs all too often in dogs and cats. Your pet can succumb to heat stroke when his body’s core temperature rises excessively — typically to 105 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. Dogs and cats are especially vulnerable to heat stroke because their furry bodies cannot sweat to dissipate heat.

Certain breeds and animals are more susceptible to heat stroke. If your animal is overweight, elderly or already has a heart condition, is it imperative that you take special care to ensure your pet is well hydrated and has access to ample cool space.  If your animal does overheat, it’s important to know the warning signs.

  • Rapid panting or particularly heavy breathing
  • Lethargy or mild weakness
  • Increased heart rate
  • Dizziness
  • Drooling
  • An elevated body temperature of 104 or more degrees Fahrenheit
  • Seizures
  • Bloody diarrhea
  • Vomit

If your animal exhibits any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately and move your pet to a cool, shady location. Begin to cool your pet’s body by placing cool, wet towels over the back of the neck, in the armpits and in the groin region. You may also wet the earflaps and paws with cool water.  CAUTION: Using very cold water can actually be counterproductive. Cooling too quickly and especially allowing his body temperature to become too low can cause other life-threatening medical conditions.

State of Texas Agriculture Relief Fund

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

tx dept agricultureLocal farmers and ranchers in our region have been devastated by the severe weather, tornadoes and flooding this past spring. To assist in the recover effort, the Texas Department of Agriculture established the STAR fund to help with the relief efforts from these events. The counties that are eligible to receive assistance in our remote area are: Young, Jack, Wise, Parker, Palo Pinto, Throckmorton, Archer, Baylor and Montague.  For a complete list of counties eligible for assistance, visit Texas Department of Agriculture’s website.

The STAR Fund (State of Texas Agriculture Relief Fund) was created solely with monetary donations from private individuals and companies, including Farm Credit, Valero and McCoy’s Building Supply. STAR Fund money may be used to assist farmers and ranchers in rebuilding fences, restoring operations and paying for other agricultural disaster relief. As natural disasters continue to impact Texas farmers and ranchers, the need for donations continues.

If you are a farmer or rancher whose property was damaged by the severe weather and your property is located in a county listed in the Governor’s disaster proclamations, you may be eligible for assistance.

For questions of eligibility and how to apply for disaster relief assistance, visit the Texas Department of Agriculture website or contact TDA’s Grants Office by phone at (512) 463-6908 or by email at [email protected]

We need your help to replenish the STAR Fund, so that TDO can continue to make a positive impact on the lives of our fellow Texans. As natural disasters continue to impact Texas farmers and ranchers, the need for donations continues to grow. Help make a difference in your community, visit to make your donation to the STAR fund today.
