When Wally and I go out, I always have a container of water for the both of us (I pour some in my hand for him to lap up while we're in a shady spot resting), and I was wondering which is best for cooling him down without causing any problems in his belly?
I've heard that if water is too cold, it can cause cramps? Would that make Room-temp water best for him? If so, I can always just have a "Wally-Bottle" of water. Or with such a smallish amount of water, does it really matter?
Just want to make sure I'm doing right by him in this oppressive heat.
P.S. Are dogs impacted by the heat index like we are, or should a "scale" it up or down? For example, when the heat index is 104, does it feel even worse to a dog, or not quite as bad? I have the same question for wind chill, but that is quite out of context in summer :P
