The behavior of walking in circles can sometimes be associated with neurological problems, which can range from mild conditions like vestibular disease to more serious issues such as brain tumors or infections affecting the brain. Heat sensitivity can also be related to neurological issues or could be a sign of overheating or a fever.

Make sure she has access to fresh water at all times and try to keep her in a shaded, well-ventilated area, especially during warmer parts of the day.

In the meantime, observe her closely for any other symptoms that may arise. If she shows signs of distress, such as panting excessively, drooling, lethargy, or if she seems disoriented or has trouble standing or walking, these could be signs of a more serious condition, such as heatstroke or a neurological issue, and would warrant immediate veterinary attention.

If you notice any changes in her eating or drinking habits, or if she has any vomiting, diarrhea, or seizures, these are also signs that she should be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible.
