Here we are at last, in the heat of summer. Many of us wait all year, weathering the cold temperatures when we would prefer to be someplace warm, memories of the warm summer sun and long days getting us through the dark winter months.
But the heat also carries a certain danger, especially when it comes to the very common problem of leaving pets in hot cars. It might seem like our loved pet might be fine, just for a couple minutes, but as you will see demonstrated in this video, the temperature escalates very quickly.
In mere minutes, the temperature skyrockets, making it difficult for the animal to breathe. As difficult as this is for a human, like we see in this video, it is even harder for pets for multiple reasons. First, they have fur. This obviously holds heat in and therefore makes it much more difficult for them to cool down. We can sweat when we are too hot, because our lack of fur makes the evaporation that cools us happen much more quickly.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, if it is 80 degrees outside, within 30 minutes the inside of the car will be up to 114 degrees. In as little as 10 minutes, the car will be over 100 degrees.
Leaving the car in the shade is not enough either, because the shade moves with the sun and provides inadequate protection.
