Love Your Animal? Leave Them Home When It’s 80 Degrees +
The heat is on! Congratulations we have made it past Memorial Day Weekend, the unofficial kick-off to summer and with it the temperature outside is beginning to soar! Officially Tuesday, June 21st 2022 is when summer hits us but it's always a great idea to prep and be mindful of a few things.
When temperatures outside range from 80 degrees to 100 degrees, the internal temperature of your car can reach a scorching 130 to 172.
I know there are a lot of people who LOVE bringing their pet with them on trips to the grocery store and beyond. PLEASE, be mindful of what the temperature is outside currently and the high for the day before you embark on your journeys. Time can get away from you and that 15 minute trip begins looking more like an hour and meanwhile your animal is slowly cooking to death.
Was that too harsh? I don't think so. Our animals are helpless and need us to make the right decisions and those decisions include keeping your animals at home. Making sure they have a full water bowl and shade to relax if they need to be outdoors.
I've seen great ideas like kiddie pools filled with ice, or even ice blocks with frozen pet safe treats inside for them to work through while you are away.
