Heat Cautions for Animals
General advice provided to locals by Illinois Extension: “…for production animals we caution that they be given plenty of fresh water, shade and ventilation. If a four-legged farm animal refuses to eat, is salivating excessively, exhibits labored breathing or has convulsions the vet should be called and the animal bathed in cool water starting at the ribs and working the way down the legs.” (Rick Atterbery)
