The canine body system constantly monitors the internal environment to ensure it functions at the optimum level.
Homeostasis is the term used to describe when the body is completely in balance. Many every day activities or experiences can affect homeostasis. The body works to counter these changes. An example of this is when a dog becomes too hot. Various internal processes cause the dog to seek water and to pant in order to cool down to return the body to homeostasis.
