10 Minutes to Disaster!
Dogs (and cats) cool themselves by panting and by releasing heat through their paws. On summer days the air and upholstery in your vehicle can heat up to high temperatures that make it impossible for pets to cool themselves. The risk is real! If it is 26C outside, inside a car, even with the windows cracked, the temperature can reach 37C in 10 minutes and 43C in 20 minutes. If your dog’s temperature reaches 41C cell and organ damage begins to occur. Please leave your animals at home when running out to do errands. If you do spot a dog or any animal in a car on a hot day please call the BCSPCA hotline at 1-855-622-7722 or the local RCMP immediately.
