Here’s Why You Should *NEVER* Leave Your Dog in a Parked Car on a Warm Day
By BL Ochman
Veterinarian Dr. Ernie Ward set out to see what it feels like for a dog helplessly trapped in a hot car – with the windows cracked. Armed with a clock,a thermometer and a video camera, Dr. Ward sat in his car, where it took only a few minutes for the temperature to reach to a sweltering – deadly – 116 degrees.
Humans sweat, Dr Ward explains, but dogs don’t have that cooling function. Their internal body temperature rises and in the 30 minutes a dog would be dead.
NEVER leave your dog in a car on a warm day – even with the windows open, even in the shade, even for a few minutes. NEVER.
