Just how hot is your car?

0 16 May 2016

 Dogs can easily succumb to heatstroke in a car, even with the windows left slightly open. This is because they cool down by panting and releasing heat through their paws. However the air in the car just gets hotter and hotter and there is no way for them to cool down. It is important to get them out of the car as quickly as possible, move to a shady place and offer some cool water. Signs of heatstroke include excessive exaggerative panting, salivation, weakness, muscle tremors, vomiting, or collapse. If this occurs you must seek veterinary attention immediately.
