Pet Care Tip: Dangers of Parked Cars and Pets

We would like to take a moment to remind everyone that pets and parked cars do not mix in warm weather. Do your furry friend a favor and try to limit where you take them when the weather is warm out. A quick trip to the store can turn into a major medical issue if the inside of the car starts to get warm. Temperatures inside a parked car can soar to over 120 degrees F in minutes. Keeping windows open does not always help, especially if there is no breeze. While we understand wanting to take your best friend with you places to have a good time, summer time just is not the best time to do it.

Remember also to have cool, clean water available for your dog and cat at all times. Please mention this to your friends and family to help protect their pets, too.
