Trusted Vets Warn Against Leaving Your Pet Dog Inside a Sweltering Car
Last month saw temperatures at an all-time high, and as the summer is on its last leg, the heat is expected to continue. High temperatures not only pose a risk to people, but also to their pet dogs, especially those left in cars, as it can cause fatal heatstroke. The RSPCA has expressed concern about pet owners leaving their furry friends inside a sweltering vehicle, saying that they had received as much as a hundred calls regarding this. To raise awareness among pet owners, they began a poster campaign aiming to reiterate that “Dogs Die in Hot Cars”. Vets nationwide, along with several animal welfare charities, are supporting the call for owners not to leave their pets inside hot cars and risk them suffering from heatstroke.
