Please Don’t Leave Your Dog in a Hot Car!

As the summer days heat up, it’s crucial to not leave your dogs in the car, even for a minute. The inside of a car can heat up to deadly temperatures within minutes, putting your dog at risk for heat stroke. Any outside temperature over 70 degrees can prove fatal to a pup left inside a vehicle, even with the windows cracked. If it is 75 degrees outside, it only takes 10 minutes to reach 100 degrees inside a car. If it’s 100 degrees outside, it only takes 15 minutes to reach 140 degrees inside. Dogs overheat very quickly and struggle to cool themselves down. Play it cool, and leave your pups at home during these hot days!
