The following is a partial transcript of the video.

Erik Zager, DVM, DACVECC: Even if you're not in a 24/7 emergency hospital, Even if you're not in a specialty hospital, heat stroke comes in and you're able to do a lot really quickly and then potentially help save that dog's life, even prior to referring it elsewhere. These things are very dynamic. It takes really quick recognition and it needs [you] to not have that moment of panic where you say, "Oh no, I don't know what I'm doing. I need to send it elsewhere." And being able to say "I think I got this" allows you to really make a huge difference in that dog's life.
