Watch: Don’t lock dogs in cars in Summer

Animal owners are being asked to not leave animals locked in cars during the Summer months.

Car temperatures rise by 10°C in less than 10 minutes, hence cars become as hot as ovens. This negatively effects dogs with long thick fur. Dog’s normal temperature is 38°C and when it increases, it increases by three grades, they suffer serious consequences.

This information has been compiled into a footage produced by Transport Malta to pass on its message; do not leave animals locked up in cars in this heat.
