Should mommy tell the lady not to leave her dog in the car?
Mommy saw a lady leave her poodle in her van yesterday when it was 89 degrees outside. She was going to say something but the lady went back to her car about 10 minutes later. What do you think…should Mommy have said something right away?
A lot of people don’t know that heat stroke can happen in a car for a dog in as little as 10 MINUTES. On an 88 degree day, it will be 104 inside the car even with four windows cracked. The Humane Society of the United States says NEVER leave a dog in the car even for few minutes. We can get really sick really fast!
If you’re super furry like me it’s hot no matter where you are, but in a car it gets hot right away. Here’s a graph from Mydogiscool.com to show you how hot it gets. They also have posters you can leave on the windshield if you see a dog in a car, and they tell you what to do if the dog looks sick!
