We all know about the danger that hot vehicles pose to children left unattended, but the animal rights group PETA also wants people to be aware of the danger posed to pets by the same. Although the outside temperature might be 90, it doesn’t take long for the interior of a car to heat up to 160, according to the organization. And the threat isn’t limited to vehicles. Even long periods of time outdoors in the heat can be dangerous to dogs, who have to pant or sweat through their paws in order to cool down. Pet owners should look out for panting and vomiting as signs of danger.
