Hot Cars Can Kill.
Even with the window down your pet can overheat in a matter of mintues.
Why Pets and Vehicles Don't Mix:
- A dog has a normal body temperature of about 30 º C (102º F). Unlike people, a dog has a limited ability to sweat to cool off. So even a brief time in a hot environment can be life threatening.
- Even on a minld day, with the windows open and parked in the shade, the temperature in a vehicle can rapidly reach very dangerous levels.
- After reading a body temperature of 41º C, it doesn't take long for a pet to begin suffering irreparable braing damage or death.
- Every summer, too many pets are left in life threatening situations inside hot vehicles. But there is something you can do about it:
ACT FAST. SAVE A LIFE. If you find a pet unattended in a hot vehicle call your local police department.
