Dogs die in hot cars.
Nobody ever thinks it will happen to them or their much loved family pet, yet every year many people still gamble with their dog’s life and every summer dogs die in hot cars.
Many people still believe that it’s ok to leave a dog in a car on a warm day if the windows are left open or they are parked in the shade. The truth is it’s still very dangerous and while not every dog left in this situation will die, at the very least they are likely to experience distress, discomfort and anxiety.
A car can become an oven very quickly even when it doesn’t feel that warm. When it is 22°c outside - within an hour - the temperature in a car can reach an unbearable 47°c.
It doesn’t have to be a hot day, it doesn’t have to be a car, and it doesn’t have to be a dog. We’ve seen dogs dying in cars but we’ve also, tragically, seen them lose their lives in conservatories. And while generally dogs are most likely to be affected, they are not the only one this applies to. Last year, a man was convicted for leaving his ferret in a car on a warm day. The ferret lost his life.
