Canine Hypothermia can be deadly so know the symptoms and be prepared to administer treatment.
Symptoms: Mild symptoms include violent, uncontrolled shivering, followed by lethargy and shallow breathing. Severe stages include 97 F rectal temperature, or lower and severe lack of coordination followed by collapse and or coma.
Treatment Afield: Dry the dog completely, and thoroughly. Wrap him in jackets, or coats, use whatever you can use to raise your dogs body temperature. Once you have gotten your dog out of the elements...use a hair dryer, heating pads, or a warm bath. Seek veterinary care as soon as rectal temperature is above 101.5 F.
Retrievers, like humans, perform much better when their core body temperatures are normal – not too hot and not too cold. Once a dog’s core temperature begins dropping, his concentration goes with it. If it goes too low, his cognitive functions begin to fail. A neoprene vest is no different to your dog than your waders are to you because it helps him retain body heat which dries his coat faster after each retrieve. Contrary to popular belief, retrievers are not bullet-proof so please take the time to zip em' up!
