Veterinarian Sits In A Hot Parked Car For 30 Minutes [Video]

 

Veterinarian, Dr. Ernie Ward, set out to see what it feels like for a dog helplessly trapped in a hot car.

Armed with a clock,a thermometer and a video camera, Dr. Ward sat in his car, with the windows cracked, for thirty minutes while the temperature climbed to a sweltering 116 degrees.

He explained, even with the windows cracked, the air in the car was still. Just a few minutes in, and already drenched with sweat – a cooling function that dogs don’t have – Dr. Ward was already starting to reflect on the suffering that dogs must experience in the same situation.

The video serves as a vivid reminder to pet parents to NOT leave a dog in a hot car, even if only for a few minutes.
