This is really important. Dog’s shed heat by panting (instead of sweating) - they expel moisture and heat as they pant and if that humid air stays around them, they will no longer cool down but will instead heat up even more, and become dehydrated at their body tries even harder to get rid of heat through panting.
A dog can get heatstroke out in the open if they are panting too heavily and making the air around them too humid and stuffy - they need to be moved (if possible). If that can happen to a dog sitting out in the open think about how much worse it would be within an enclose space like a car. Hyperthermia will kill a dog and it is a terrible way to go.
Call 911 in the U.S. anytime you see a dog left alone in a car in warm weather … or break out a window and rescue the helpless animal and save a life.
I think you can only spend so many nights home alone before you start wondering if it is because no one wants to be around you. And that hurts. Just being honest.
NEW! Help this little cutie with a reblog and/or donation so her rescuers can take care of her medical needs! Thank you so much!
Anna Banana is a 10 week old border collie who Animal Aid Vermilion Area Rescue saved from St. Martin Shelter. She is so sweet and cute and they want to find her a forever home where she can be loved as soon as possible. In order to do this, her rescuers need to get her completely vetted. She had not had any basic care, so she requires a wellness exam, all vaccines, microchipping and an eventual spay. Thank you in advance for your donations to Anna Banana. It is because of kind pet lovers like you that rescues are able to continue to pull these perfectly good pets from overcrowded shelters, who are on death row for literally no good reason.
How can “biweekly” mean twice a week AND every two weeks?! How would you possibly know the meaning of the word when used in a sentence?!?!
