Is it ever safe to leave my dog in the car unattended?

Posted by

The simple answer is no. Even in the winter time in a northern area a dog can die in a car. Due to the green house effect a car can reach over a 100 degrees Fahrenheit in minutes. At these temperatures any living organism will surely die if not brought to a cooler place. It is also not safe to leave the car running because cars stall all the time. If a dog is left in a car and ends up suffering from heatstroke they will need to spend several days in a hospital with very expensive treatment that many times fail. If you have to leave your car and cannot bring your dog with you, the best thing is to tie them outside the car under the shade. Often times leaving the windows down does not provide enough air circulation. Also provide water for them and leave them for only a few minutes.
