M�� 18, 2011 SHOULD I TAKE MY DOG WITH ME? It’s that time of the year again, warm temperatures are here. The proper answer the question is, NO! Your Lo- cal Animal shelter wants to remind pet owners of a few reasons why. First, in Arizona it is a Class 1 misde- meanor resulting in up to $1000 fi ne and/or time in jail, if the animal is found in distress. Even leaving four windows cracked, your pet can be at risk. During a 95 de- gree day the temperatures in the car can quickly rise to 115 degrees, a 112 degree day temperature can reach 130 degrees and so on. Even in the shade the inside car temperatures be 10-20 degrees hotter. Signs of Heat Stroke are: Body temps of 101˚ – 110˚ F, Excessive panting, Dark or Bright red tongue and gums, staggering, stupor, seizures, bloody diarrhea, and coma. Some ways to protect your pet: is to offer shade and fresh water all day (remember that the shade moves throughout the day). If you must take the animal with you, Use drive up win- dows, use pet welcomed businesses, and take a travel kennel with you and use it outside the car, in the shade.
