I'm a vet tech – why certain dog breeds end up in the hospital every summer… look for this if you've got a pit bull | The Sun
A VET TECH has revealed the reasons certain dog breeds are guaranteed to end up in the hospital this summer – and it’s bad news if you’ve got a pit bull.
Sidney suggested that it’s pit bulls and rottweilers that often suffer from heat stroke, while labradors will be the ones causing chaos at your summer barbecues.
She also recommended keeping an eye on your pet’s paws, as removing foxtails is a common job throughout the summer.
Sidney said: “Why dogs visit the emergency vet in Summer.
“Pittie. Heat stroke, limping after playing in the park, ear hematoma.
“Rottie. Broken nail, heatstroke x 100, foxtail in eye.

“Rotisserie chicken at the BBQ is so accurate,” commented another.

“If my dog went to BBQs he would be the type to go to the ER cuz he ate the tinfoil off of leftover burgers or ate the plastic on the hotdog wrappers,” shared someone else.
Elsewhere, a vet issued a stark warning to dog owners after revealing the breeds that are way more prone to heat stroke – and it’s bad news for chow chow or bulldog owners.
Cat said: “Another heat wave is about to hit the UK and here are the dog breeds most likely to be affected by heat stroke.
“Leading the pack and being 17 times more likely to suffer than the average dog with heat stroke is the chow chow.
“Hardly surprising when you consider that they've got a double whammy of a slightly flat face and a massive coat.
“In second, third, and fourth place are the English bulldog, the French bulldog, and the Dogue De Bordeaux.
