It may have cooled down in Texas, but don't let our seasons fool you. We can have heat in a minute. If you are travelling with your pet , remember, if it’s just 70 degrees outside, it takes only about 10 minutes for a car’s internal temperature to rise to 89 degrees. After 20 minutes, the temperature hits 99 degrees, and it only gets hotter from there. After just 15 minutes in a hot car on a warm day, a dog can suffer brain damage or heat stroke. The hotter the day, the less time it takes for the result of leaving a dog in a hot car to turn fatal. Cracking your window a smidge or parking in the shade won’t help as much as you think it would. Simply put, if you bring your pet with you on a road trip, DO NOT leave them alone in the car for any period of time. Make sure that they always have plenty of water and that your vehicle is adequately air conditioned, and be aware of the signs of heatstroke, which include lethargy, heavy panting, excessive thirst, and vomiting.
