+ Heat Warning +



This goes all to all the Pet Owners/Lovers and Animal Activists.

The heat inside of a car(window open or not) is very dangerous place to be, especially when you can not leave much like your pet. It is just as dangerous for a dog as it is your own child, depending on breed even mores o. Leaving an animal in the car alone for more then 30 mins can begin to slowly kill them. An hour? Depending on size, breed of dog, and many other varying factors they could suffer from heat stroke.

Note: Short-nosed breeds such as Pugs, Pits, ect., Large Heavy-coated dogs, and dogs with heat or respiratory problems have double the risk of getting heat stroke.

Signs of Heat Stroke include(but are not limited too)
- Body Temps of 104-110
- Dark or Bright red Tongue and Gums
- Sticky or Dry Tongue and Gums
- Staggering
- Stupor
- Seizures
- Bloody Diarrhea or Vomiting
- Rapid heart beat

Cooling your Pet
- Find some shade. Get your Dog out of the heat.
- Use cool water, NOT Ice water, to cool your pet.
(Very cold water can constrict the blood vessels and impede the cooling process)
- Place wet clothes around feet and head of your pet
- Offer Ice Cubes for the animal to lick
- Contact your veterinarian

NOTICE

NEVER EVER ignore a dog/pet in a car, regardless if it is yours or not, call your local police or animal control specialists if you see any of these symptoms in a dog trapped inside a car.

Don't be a douche, save a precious life!!
