If you're a Shih Tzu owner, you probably know quite a bit about the breed, either through research or just from spending time with your pooch. One of the things that you might know is a very serious health concern for these adorable animals. That concern is overheating. The Shih Tzu's flat snout makes it even more adorable, but did you know that dogs with flat snouts are more prone to overheating and heat stroke? This can be deadly for your pet. Even though the thought of something happening to your Shih Tzu may be scary, don't worry. There are ways that you can handle this potential danger if it does happen to your pet. The key is to act quickly, and always remember that any emergency should always be handled by your pet's vet.
