I have one of (I think) the original cooling vests and beds. It contains those little foam beads like used in landscaping that hold more water. You soak the item in cold water, allow the beads to expand and then refrigerate (if necessary) to keep cool. I would be certain to monitor the animals temperature just in case their temperature drops too much.
I had a black cocker, closed to the ground and summer walks were too hot, no matter the time of day. The vest helped with that a little.

an animal the same way they view that of a man today.
