Group Warns Against Leaving Animal Companions out in the Sun

Valley, Calif. -- PETA receives reports every year about animals who suffer
horrifying deaths during the spring and summer months. During warm
weather, even dogs who are left in a car in the shade can quickly succumb to
heatstroke and suffer brain damage as a result. On a 78-degree day, the
temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 100 and 120 degrees in just
minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature of a car can reach as
high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes. If you see a dog showing any
symptoms of heatstroke—including restlessness, heavy
panting, vomiting, lethargy, or lack of appetite or coordination—get the
animal into the shade immediately. You can lower a symptomatic dog's body
temperature by providing him or her with water, applying a cold towel to the
dog's head and chest, or immersing the dog in tepid (not ice-cold) water. Then
immediately call a veterinarian.
