Summer temperature guidelines for leaving dogs and cats in your car

Published on July 27, 2015 in Cat Health, Dog Health

We try to spread the word every year about how hot your car can get in the summer! Do not leave your dog or cat in the car when it is near 70 degrees F outside. Not even for a short time. Alert business management and call police or animal control if you see a pet in a hot car.

75 degrees outside = 118 degrees inside the car

77 degrees outside = 123 degrees inside the car

81 degrees outside = 138 degrees inside the car

90 degrees outside = 143 degrees inside the car

94 degrees outside = 145 degrees inside the car
