We live in a busy world where free time is at a premium. It may be tempting to leave your dog in your car for a few minutes while you run errands. Temperatures in your car can soar to over 100 degrees in minutes, leaving your dog trapped in an oven. Life-threatening heat stroke can occur in as little as 15 minutes. Please resist the urge to leave your pet in the car on a hot day, even with the windows open.
