We have all heard about dogs dying in a parked car, but this actuallly happens more than you may think. On a hot summer day the inside of a car heats VERY quickly. On an 80°F day, for example, the temperature inside your car –with the windows opened– will reach 102°F in 10 minutes. In 30 minutes it will reach 120°F. On warmer days it will go even higher. A dog's normal body temperature is 101.3–101.2°F. A dog can withstand a body temperature of 107–108°F. for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage –or even death.
