News ImageApril 23, 2017  Spring is Here Along with Warmer Weather!Spring is here and with that comes warmer weather. It may seem like common sense, but too often we see people leaving their dogs or other pets inside of a hot vehicle. Did you know that on a 78-degree day, temperatures can rise to over 100-degrees in minutes? It only takes around 15 minutes for an animal to suffer from brain damage or die from heatstroke. Hot pavement can also pose a threat. If it’s too hot for you to walk around barefoot, it’s too hot for your dog too! Hot pavement can cause sores, burns and leave your dog in pain and discomfort. Walking your pets during the early morning and late evening can help. Do your part and educate friends and family on the dangers that come with warmer weather for your pets. Remember, if you ever see a dog or any animal left alone in a hot car, call the local police or OC Animal Care immediately.
