Did you know, with an outside temperature of 80 degrees a parked car can reach unsafe temperatures (higher than 94.3 degrees) in less than 10 minutes? Every year countless pets left in parked vehicles die from hyperthermia.
"An ounce of prevention is greater than a pound of cure." Thanks Mr. Franklin, that's good advice! Warm outside and you have errands to run? Leave your dog (or your cat) at home. Want to hang around outside in the yard or go to the park? Be sure there is shade, and take along fresh cold water for your pet. Feel like tossing the ball with Rover? Limit the number of throws. Think smart and stop heatstroke before it happens.
