How does cat and dog cool in summer?

QQ截图20201209151915.jpg Summer often saw the dog grew up! Decades the dripping, especially when I saw a furry dog, many people would feel that the owner was cruel, why did you get a lot of water? Don’t shave the dog? In fact, this is a long-cooling method of the dog. The dog’s sweat gland is distributed in the tongue, with a big mouth, spit out his tongue, haha, so that you can secrete a lot of saliva. sweat. By flowing out a large amount of saliva, the squeextil is evaporated to reduce the body temperature. In addition, the dog’s foot pad is also one of the heat dissipation sources!
