We’re in the heat of summer and even though you may enjoy those hot days lounging by the pool, it doesn’t mean your pet is comfortable being outdoors. There are many heat-related dangers that pet parents may not think about when it comes to what is safe or unsafe for their companion animals. Here are some tips to hopefully avoid any hot weather tragedies:
Don’t Leave Pets in Parked Cars
Never leave your pet in a parked car. Even if you crack the window it isn’t sufficient protection from the heat. A car can turn into an oven in mere minutes which can lead to your pet suffering organ damage, heatstroke or death. Even if parked in the shade, a car’s inside temperature can rapidly soar to a dangerous level.
