With the HOT HOT HOT weather we will experience this weekend please remember this about heat stroke and your pet. Even though having them with you is fun remember these tips and possibly leave your pet at home while you enjoy the outdoors.

Hyperthermia commonly known as heatstroke may be a life-threatening condition that requires immediate treatment.
A dog’s normal body temperature is 101.5°F plus or minus 1 degree.
Heatstroke generally occurs in hot summer weather when dogs are left with inadequate ventilation in hot vehicles. However, heatstroke may also occur in other conditions, including:
1. When an animal is left outdoors in hot/humid conditions without adequate shade.
2. When exercised in hot/humid weather.
3. When left in a car on a relatively cool (70°F) day; a recent study from Stanford University Medical Center found the temperature within a vehicle may increase by an average of 40 degrees Fahrenheit within one hour regardless of outside temperature.
4. Brachycephalic (short-nosed) breeds can be more prone to heat stroke due to their short nose and difficulty breathing.
What to Do
• Remove your pet from the environment where the hyperthermia occurred.
• Move your pet to shaded and cool environment, and direct a fan on her.
• If possible, determine rectal temperature and record it.
• Begin to cool the 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 ear flaps and paws with cool water. Rotate towel frequently, as they warm up they stop reducing your pets temperature.
• Call your veterinarian immediately. If possible, take a rectal temperature. The goal is to reduce body temperature to 102.5 to 103 degrees while transporting it to the closest veterinary facility.
• Even if the situation appears under control, see your veterinarian immediately. Your dog may need intravenous fluids, and heatstroke may cause lingering problems that aren’t immediately apparent, such as kidney or blood-clotting issues.
What NOT to Do
• Don’t put your dog in an ice bath or use ice-cold water. It would seem natural to use the coldest water possible, but this will actually cause blood vessels near the surface of the skin to constrict, trapping heat and preventing the dog from cooling off.
• Most pets with hyperthermia have body temperatures greater than 105°F, and a reasonable goal of cooling is to reduce your pet’s body temperature to 102.5-103°F while transporting her to the closest veterinary facility.
• Do not attempt to force water into your pet’s mouth, but you may have fresh cool water ready to offer should your pet be alert and show an interest in drinking.
• Do not leave your pet unattended for any length of time.
Severe hyperthermia is a disease that affects nearly every system in the body.
Simply lowering the body temperature fails to address the potentially catastrophic events that often accompany this disorder.
A pet suffering from hyperthermia should be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Please help us say goodbye and good luck to Dr. Payne, as she is moving North of San Antonio with her family!

Dr. Payne joined the Alamo Hills team in April of 2020, and has helped provide excellent medical and surgical care to our patients the past 2 years.

Last day of reception and kennel week! We celebrated with a catered lunch and bagels for breakfast!
Let’s hear it for the front staff!

They are the first ones you see and usually the last ones you see walking out the door.
They are our front line when things get hectic and do an amazing job checking people in, answering phones, scheduling appointments, plus so much more!
Thank you Erica, Stacy, Rockie, and our newest receptionist Ally!

Thanks ladies for all you do! 🐾🐾🐾

Check out these before and after pics from a recent dental! •

Dental health is a key part of your pet’s overall health! Your pet’s teeth and gums should be checked at least yearly by your veterinarian. 🦷 🐶🐱•

Just like us, our fur babies require dental cleanings. This process includes scaling and polishing. Ideally, dental radiographs (X-rays) would also be performed to observe health below the gumline. •

Dental cleanings require general anesthesia. For this reason, we recommend preanesthetic bloodwork to assess liver and kidney health prior to the procedure! 💉🩸•

Ask your veterinarian or technician for more info! #caninedentalhealth #surgery #dentalcleaning

Thursday was a crazy day for us! A patient presented for trouble delivering her puppies, which is called dystocia.
This means that the mother is pushing to deliver a puppy for over 30-60 minutes, with no success. This is a true emergency and the mom needs to be seen right away to save her and the puppies lives.
We immediately jumped into action and preformed an emergency cesarean to save the pups. Mom and babies are doing great!

The sweetest boy, Parker, getting laser therapy on his left knee! 🐶•

Did you know that laser therapy can help manage pain, inflammation and help wound healing?
It releases endorphins, increases blood flow/decreases inflammation & relaxes muscles! We commonly use it to help manage arthritis, traumatic injuries & even on surgical incisions!•

Ask your veterinarian or technician for more information! •

(& a huge shoutout to @phephie for loving on this special boy)

Words cannot do justice in expressing how much I love and appreciate Dr. Lauri Jehl Sims! For at LEAST 25 years I’ve trusted her with my cats and she is simply the best in my book! Always and every time! I simply can’t thank you enough. Everything about Alamo Hills expresses her approach to medicine. Kind. Compassionate. No chaos. Like family.
Thanks for boarding my dogs this past weekend! Maple (pictured) came home happy and Gandhi came home tired. Seems like a winning situation for my babies (and for us!) 💜
Always an extra thank you to the best , from receptionist, kennel techs, vet techs and Doctors. Thanks so much for working in FireBall and Jett today and helping so many of my Clients!
I apologize for not thanking you all sooner especially Dr. Campbell for taking care of Nanïí all her life. You helped us during her last few days as she battled cancer and during her last hours. She earned her wings that fateful afternoon when I dropped her off for day boarding so she wasn’t alone at home, you were a familiar voice to her and that helps ease my guilt every time I think about not making it on time to tell her goodbye. I am still mourning her loss. tonight Nanïí May have gently reminded me for out of nowhere I thought of you and the staff... thank you!
Thank you so much to Dr Ashley Hagauer Somers, Dr Payne and all the Staff at Alamo Hills Hospital for all the care and love towards our 2 dogs - Pepper and LuluBell. While a very difficult decision in letting them both go, (LuluBell 2 years ago and Pepper last night) we know that we made the right decision thanks to them. The person that both myself and husband really want to thank is Vet Tech Samantha Peterson who has been so wonderful and caring with all of our animals. Yesterday when she came out to help bring Pepper in and he heard her voice he perked right up and even took a piece of cheese from her - the most active he was all day. We thank you for letting us see the puppy he once was ❤️
Phoebe wanted to say hello!
Thank you Dr. Campbell and Alamo Hills Animal Hospital team for your support during Nanïí’s journey while on this earth. Today you were there to help her earn her halo and angel wings. Thank you!
This is why we bring our animals to you! Thank you Samantha Peterson for treating them as part of your family! 🥰
Thank you to the wonderful staff at Alamo Hills Animal Hospital. I have been broken hearted since losing my Zoey 2 weeks ago, but today I received the sweetest card with hand written notes from staff members. It made me smile and my heart was so full. Thank you for being so amazingly kind when I brought Zoey in that day, and for your thoughtfulness after. ❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️
Thank you guys for taking care of my personal Dogs and my RAVE RETRIEVERS clients Dogs . It means so much to all of us that we get the very best care for our family. Our working Dogs needs the super savvy Doctors, technicians and supportive staff. Please know how much we appreciate you all.
