    My dog's head is really hot... does this mean he just has a head ache? Or is he sick?

    Anyone ever heard of anything like this?

    Thanks if anyone has any input.

    Is he acting normal? You probably should take his temperature. Here is what I found online so that you know what is normal:

    "A dog's normal body temperature ranges between 100.5 Fahrenheit (38.1°C) and 102.5 Fahrenheit (39.2°C).

    A dog's temperature below 99 degrees Fahrenheit (37.2°C) and temperatures above 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40°C) are considered extremely serious and your dog should be brought to a veterinarian immediately."

    And other things you should look at are wether he is outside in the heat or if its just like that all the time, Ive never heard of this but like Poodlesmom said take his temp. and see if thats it, if he is acting weird or acting sick, contact your vet and see whats up.
