Each year, countless animals die because they are left in cars on warm, not just hot days.  Most people don't realize how quickly the temperature in a car rises, making even a five-minute errand a dangerous situation for a pet left in a parked car. 

 

Doctor René Carlson, President of the American Veterinary Medical Association:  “When it comes to your pet's safety and health, every minute counts.  In just ten minutes, the temperature inside a car can rise 19 degrees. Even if it's 'only' 75 out, the temperature in the car can go up to 94 degrees. In another ten minutes, you're looking at a dangerous 104. And, cracking windows does not help. Situations like this leave your pet in danger of heat stroke, a life-threatening condition if left untreated by a veterinarian.”

 

Be sure to leave your pet at home except for when you need to have them in the car.  For more about what you can do to be sure your pet stays safe and beats the summer heat, visit:  www.myveterinarian.com.
