Heat Pet Safety

Every summer, as temperatures rise, so does the danger of pets dying because carless owners left them in a hot car. While humans cool themselves by relying on an extensive system of sweat glands and evaporation, dogs and other animals have a harder time staying cool, leaving them extremely vulnerable to heatstroke.

Parked cars quickly trap the sun's heat. Even on a day when it's 70 degrees outside, the temperature inside a car with the windows rolled up can hit 90 degrees in just 10 minutes. On a hot day, the temperature inside a closed car can shoot as high as 130 degrees in the same amount of time. -Source animal legal defense fund, www.aldf.org.

Now, for those of us in the Imperial Valley, leaving your dogs in the car with the windows cracked isn't an option. Each minute that passes means increased danger for your dog, who can become overheated ad suffer from heat stroke in a matter of minutes. Untreated, he/she can go into cardiac arrest and die.

Sadly, veterinarians throughout the country expect to be treating far too many dogs for heat-related conditions during the summer and early fall. Signs of heat stroke include excessive panting, agitation, vomiting, weakness and collapse.

Heat Related Deaths

Where's Baby? Look Before You Lock

The City of Imperial would like to remind the community to #lookbeforeyoulock during these hot summer months. Did you Heatstroke is the number one killer of children, outside of car crashes. The Administration of Children and Families has partnered with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to attempt to reduce these deaths by reminding parents and caregivers about the dangers of heatstroke and leaving children in hot cars.
