We understand that you meant to be kind in taking your pet with you today, but you could be risking its life.
Every summer countless animals suffer needlessly and even die in cars that become unbearable ovens when parked in the sun.
Leaving the windows slightly open doesn’t stop a car from heating up to 39°C (100°F) in as little as 10 minutes on a 29°C day. Within a half-hour, temperatures in the car can soar to 49°C (120°F). Your pet does not sweat like you do.
A hot car interferes with a pet’s normal cooling process, that is, evaporation through panting. With nothing but overheated air to breath, an animal can last only a short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or even death.
Your pet would be much happier and healthier if you left them at home.
If your pet is overcome by heat exhaustion, you can give immediate first aid by immersing them in cool water (body only). Take your pet to the nearest vet immediately.
