Summer is just around the corner and that means it’s going to get hot for you – and your dog. Dog owners should constantly be reminded never to leave their dogs inside a parked car, even for just a minute. That short period of time can be deadly for your pooch.
If you feel hot, just imagine how scorching the heat can be for your furry friend. One Imgur user named Android used an egg to show people why it’s never (ever) a good idea to leave your dog inside the car. The instructional series used a raw egg in a pan left inside the car on a hot day and showed what happens in 15 minutes.
The instructional starts out with a raw egg in a pan left inside the car.
The egg slowly gets cooked.
You can imagine just how hot it is inside the car.
And voila! You have a perfectly fried egg inside the car without doing anything. It’s ready for breakfast!
While dogs can easily cool themselves off by panting, the heat inside the car is just unbearable and panting can do little to help. The longer a dog is left out in the heat – which would only be a matter of minutes – the greater chances that its vital systems will be negatively affected in a significant way.
Owners may not intentionally put their dogs in danger by leaving them inside a parked car but this action is already considered a case of animal abuse, neglect and cruelty. As how PET explained it:
“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 can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes.”
