Get the Facts: Dogs Die in Hot Cars Much Quicker Than You Think!

Inside a car, fifty percent of the temperature increase typically occurs in the first twenty minutes. This means when it is 64°F (18°C) outside, inside your car it can reach 93°F (34°C) in 20 minutes and a staggering 122°F (50°C) in a matter of an hour. Don’t think – for a minute – that your dog can withstand the rising temperatures of a parked car!

Due to the Greenhouse Effect, you might as well leave your dog in an oven – cause that’s what it’s like to a dog in a hot car. Seriously.

When it come to handling the heat, dogs cannot take it as hot as we can. Their body temperature is already higher than ours. They can’t sweat. And panting, their main means of cooling off, is a rather inefficient means of dissipating body heat especially in a hot, humid car. Find out more about the dangers of hot cars below. The more you know, the more dogs you can keep cool – especially your own!
