     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.
