It’s something that most of us remember, that leaving you dog in a hot car is very dangerous.
Unfortunately, some people don’t realise this and it’s still happening.
As we come up to the summer months we need o ensure that everyone who has a dog or may be looking after a dog this summer, that they know not to leave a dog in a hot car.
All year round dogs are left in cars, but in summer it’s very important.
Dogs should never be left in cars for a long period of time or at all, especially if they’re a bigger breed in a car, that may not be suited to their size.
Cars in hot weather can be a deathtrap for dogs, in just minutes the temperature can increase and this will do a lot of damage to a dog.
It’s not just the case of leaving a window open or leaving them water because that won’t change anything.
Animals can get brain damage or even die from being in a situation with too much heat or a heatstroke in just 15 minutes. That 15 minutes could be going to get some shopping or even waiting for the family to get in the car.
15 minutes is a very small amount of time and time that can go past very quickly, but in that time you could lose someone very close to you.
It’s very important that if you see a dog in a hot car, that you take the car’s model, make, licence number and colour, and if you can the dog breed and colour.
Then, cal the local animal authorities, your local vet or the police and you shouldn’t leave until the situation has been resolved.
