good to have a thermometer on hand for the dog taking a temp would have been the 1st thing I would have done , they can get heat stroke in the shade as well each dog handles heat differently then the other. If she hasnt thrown up in the last lil bit I would just keep an eye on her tonight. Imnot sure I would have fed her Id let her drink but watch she doesnt over do it to fast oor could cause her to vomit again. make sure she stays hydrated if she throws up at all tonight id re-evaluate and either take her in 1st thing in morning or tonight if she shows other symptoms.

thank you all for replying!:)

and i have been watching her... she is doing better, im thinking its like you all are saying, she was just dehydrated im more then positive. she doesnt tend well to heat im guessing just like her owner lol i live in south texas.. you best believe its HOT!! lol im thinking she just over heated since it was her first REAL heat exposure as shes only a pup:) no signs off any dehydration or anything as of today.

Also forgot to mention she is a inside dogs so thats how i came to the conclusion.:)

I live in North Texas and it's hot enough for me up here for sure.
I'm glad she is doing better.
I'm very lucky that my pup (when we are outide) will take a dip in the water dishes and keep herself cool. It's been in the 100's for a very very long time.

If she did have a heat stroke you are going to have to watch her in warm weather from now on. Heat affects you differently after having a heat stroke.
