Although still in Spring temperatures are continuing to rise, perhaps getting us ready for summer. With hotter temperatures upon us we need to be aware of how hot a car can get when we take our four legged friends on a car ride.

Here’s how hot the inside of a car can get:

  • Outside temperature 82 degrees —> 109 degrees
  • Outside temperature 87 degrees —> 115 degrees
  • Outside temperate 100 degrees —> 117 degrees

Here’s some tips for hot summer days:

  • Leave your pet at home on hot summer days.
  • If including the pet on a car ride be sure to bring plenty of water.
  • Bring your pet only when a passenger is able to stay in the vehicle with the air conditioner on while you complete your errands.
