Dogs Die In Hot Cars

Dogs Die In Hot Cars

Every year we try to remind owners that dogs die in hot cars but every year we see the results of owners forgetting that message.

Already this year we have seen one very sad fatality.

Cars heat up so quickly, even with the windows down and even if they are not in direct sunshine. Dogs have fur coats and they can't sweat like humans so they literally cook from the inside.

And even if they do reach us alive, frequently other irreversible processes have already been triggered meaning that despite all our efforts, we may be unable to save the patient.

PLEASE, don't leave pets in cars unattended at any time of the year but especially during the summer months - it may be their death sentence.
