In the Generalized Maxwell-Cattaneo equations the temperature and heat flux are separate variables that are related through a system of partial differential equations. In a previous paper [5] the authors established continuous dependence of the temperature on spatial geometry. In this paper inequalities are derived which imply continuous dependence of the heat flux on spatial geometry. The arguments employed here are quite different and more complicated than those of the previous paper.
