    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    My 10 year old sitzu, at times gets a hot body. He can be sleeping and all of a sudden he whins and gets hot all over to the point of sweating. What is the cause and cure for this?

    Bernadine Cruz, DVM responded:
    This sounds very unusual. I would strongly recommend that you actually take his temperature with a digital rectal thermometer to determine what his body temperature is during these episodes. A normal temperature for a dogs is between 101 and 102.5 Fahrenheit. There are times when the can seem to be feverish and they are actually normal. Dogs don't sweat through their skin as we do. The only sweat glands they have are on their paws.
    The safest thing to do would be to have your pet examined by your veterinarian especially if you have not had this done recently. He could be experiencing pain and that is causing him to whine. .
