    Veterinarian sits in hot parked car for 30 minutes

    Veterinarian Sits in a Hot Parked Car for 30 Minutes | The Dogington Post

    Veterinarian, Dr. Ernie Ward, set out to see what it feels like for a dog helplessly trapped in a hot car.

    Armed with a clock,a thermometer and a video camera, Dr. Ward sat in his car, with the windows cracked, for thirty minutes while the temperature climbed to a sweltering 116 degrees.

    The doctor explained, even with the windows cracked, the air in the car was still. Just a few minutes in, and already drenched with sweat – a cooling function that dogs don’t have – Dr. Ward was already starting to reflect on the suffering that dogs must experience in the same situation.

    The video below serves as a vivid reminder to pet parents to NOT leave a dog in a hot car, even if only for a few minutes.


    This is great.

    I watched this yesterday, a neighbor was talking about someone she knew had a sick cat because they had left in in the car because after a vet appointment they had gone to lunch and left the cat in the car, in a carrier and it was in the 80's that day. She told me about the video so I found it and watched.

    It makes me so incredibly sad for the animals.

    I think someone posted this in the debate thread. It's awesome.

    "Thank you so much. No matter what, nothing is possible without you behind the scenes bustin heads and takin names. Thank you again. Everything you have done for me means a lot and nothing has gone unnoticed. I love you so much and thank you for saying 'I do.'"
