Vehicles as pet ovens! Beware!
With ambient temperatures getting warmer once again, it’s time to keep your pets out of the hot car. The greenhouse effect of car windows and lack of airflow can turn a car into an oven in short order even on a cool (50-60 degree)sunny day. Having water available and shade can be helpful, but don’t get a false sense of security that your pet will be okay inside of a vehicle.
Very young dogs, old dogs, sick dogs, and brachycephalic (short- nose) breeds are especially susceptible to high temperatures. Depending on how warm the dog was and for how long, heat stroke is not always reversible even with emergency treatment.
Don’t take a chance, keep your pet safe!
