A quick PSA

It’s passed 10 PM, and I’m already in pajamas sipping on my camomile tea. And while I am tempted to just go to bed, I will not fail the 30-day challenge on day five! Therefore, I thought I’d dedicate today’s post to something that’s really important to remember now that summer’s coming up, namely car temperatures.

As many of you have probably heard before, the temperature inside your vehicle will rise alarmingly fast when it’s hot outside. I’m not going to do a long write-up on the topic, but rather link you to The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) website, and include their infographic below.

I will, however, urge you to remind all your pet-owner-friends about this, and remind them that cracking a window is not a sufficient cooling mechanism when leaving their dogs in their cars.
