Car Temperature Dog Safety Chart
As summer approaches and we travel with our best friends, it's important to keep in mind this chart which shows how hot it gets in the car.
If you do observe any of the heatstroke symptoms below immediately move them into a shaded area preferably into an air-conditioned space and begin cooling them off with ice packs or cold towels. Allow them to drink some water or lick ice cubes and then get them to a veterinarian immediately.
Symptoms to look for include restlessness, thick saliva, excessive thirst, heavy panting, lethargy, lack of appetite, dark tongue, rapid heartbeat, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, or lack of coordination.
We know that as pet owner’s you’ll be especially careful during these hotter months, will consider the risks, and choose not to leave them alone in a vehicle even if it’s only for a few minutes. Plus, your dog will be happy to "guard the fort" at home where they can lay on the cool tile... or on your bed. 🐶
