Infographic: Dangers of Leaving Your Small Dog in A Hot Car.

It’s a fact that leaving your dog inside a hot vehicle on a very hot day, even with the window slightly open, is not only unadvised but is also dangerous for your beloved pooch. Not everyone, however, knows that leaving their dogs inside their parked vehicles while temperatures climb over a staggering 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius) can be fatal for our furry friends.

Every year, more and more cases of dogs being left in parked cars in these dangerous circumstances are recorded. Sadly, this means that the number of pets who suffer and die in this situation also rise.

Parked cars – especially in those in hot temperatures – are death traps for dogs. With temperatures outside so high and their own body temperatures exceeding us owners, it literally takes only minutes for them to succumb to heatstroke and suffocation if left in a vehicle with no way to cool off on a warm day. As a matter of fact, each minute that passes dramatically increases the chances of your dog to succumbing to heatstroke, suffocation and cardiac arrest. 

Of course, many argue the many alternatives to this scenario to justify leaving their own dogs in their cars. The most popular argument is that the dogs will be fine if the windows are left open to let the air in. However, that itself doesn’t help the matter at hand, because cars heat up more than you think.

Don’t leave your pooch in this dangerous scenario and potentially lose a valuable member of your family! Thank you to Global Tint UK for this informative infographic about out the dangers of leaving your dog in a hot car.
