Your Dog May Be Dying
We understand you meant to be kind taking your dog with you today, but you could be risking his life.
On a hot summer day the inside of a car heats very quickly. On an 85 degree day, for example, the temperature inside your car--with the windows slightly opened--will reach 102 degrees in 10 minutes. In 30 minutes it will go up to 120 degrees. On warmer days it will go even higher.
A dog's normal body temperature is 101.5 to 102.2 degrees Fahrenheit. A dog can withstand a body temperature of 107-108 degrees Fahrenheit for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage--or even death. The closed car interferes with the dog's normal cooling process, that is, evaporation through panting.
IF YOUR DOG IS OVERCOME BY HEAT EXHAUSTION, YOU CAN GIVE IMMEDIATE FIRST AID BY IMMERISING HIM OR HER IN COLD WATER UNTIL BODY TEMPERATURE IS LOWERED.
