Much like you wouldn’t want to put a frostbite victim in a bath of hot water you should not feed your dog icewater on an extremely hot day when they are over exhausted. This can cause a shock to their circulatory system.
This is not my dog nor situation but with all the attention this article has gotten and the impression that this information is False because of Snopes.com and other Veterinarians is not entirely True either. What they claim False is this particular story and the fact ice water or an ice cube in moderation is not an issue or an issue on relaxed, cooled dogs. But they do go onto state that the amount of any kind of water can cause an issue or vigorous drinking.
I will put parts of the article in bold print to show that the dog wasn’t cooled down and before the ice in water was given, the dog had already drank the bucket of water and a bit later symptoms were noticed.
I will also add a link to how to treat a dog over heating. Within that part of the article.
