Photo: SHANE WENZLICK Think of your furry friends while you're enjoying the sun this summer. That's the warning from the SPCA which is urging pet owners to be careful when leaving dogs in cars. Chief inspector Vicki Border says that can make them very sick very quickly. The most serious case she's seen this year was at the start of October. Adogwasleftinacar with the windows closed while its owner was at work. Luckily an SPCA worker found the dog -- which was unconscious -- and broke a car window to get it out. It was touch and go but the dog survived, Ms Border says. People who leave their dogs in the car don't understand how it can harm their pets or they just don't think. Car interiors can get as hot as 70 degrees in as little as 10 minutes in the middle of summer, she says. And the impact on a dog is serious. It can cause major organ fail- ure, brain damage, unconsciousness and seizures. Vets have to cool the dog slowly and give it cold intravenous fluids, steroids to counteract shock and oxygen to keep the lungs going, Ms Bor- der says. The safest thing is not toleaveadoginacarat all during the summer. But if it can't be avoided, leave them with a bowl of water, park in the shade, roll all the windows down and stay for only a short period of time. People also need to think about their pets left at home, Ms Border says. Garages or sheds can heat up quickly too so it's important to make sure pets are left in well- ventilated areas with lots of water.
