Is it to hot for your Pet? Locally, police and animal control officers have been called to assist overheated dogs locked in cars parked at the casinos, grocery stores, and restaurants. Dog owners should be aware that officers do have the right to break a car’s window if they feel the dog needs immediate help to save its life.
As you’ve probably noticed, cars heat quickly. A Stanford University study found that the temperature inside cars reaches 80 percent of its peak temperature in the first 30 minutes. The study also found almost no temperature difference between a closed car and one with the windows cracked open. On a 95-degree day, a car can reach 149 degrees in 15 minutes. 72 degree day, a car can reach 116 degrees within 60 minutes. Fifteen minutes in a hot car is enough to cause a dog to suffer from heat stroke.
This can be fatal, or cause permanent brain damage. Dogs inside cars are not the only ones who suffer in the heat. Dogs who ride in the backs of trucks are at extreme risk of heat-related illness, too. Plus, the hot air quickly can quickly dehydrate a dog, whose main tool for regulating his body temperature is panting. If you see any of these symptoms in a dog who has been exposed to excessive heat, get help from a veterinarian immediately.
Leave your dogs home on hot days. As much as they may enjoy taking a ride with you in the car or truck, be a responsible pet owner and make them stay home. Oroville, call the Oroville Police Department at 538-2480. In the county, call the Butte County Sherriff’s Department at 538-7321.

Veterinarians who are familiar with the conditions these dogs are subjected to during breeding, training, and racing are likely to recognize the subtle signs and symptoms necessary to diagnose and treat some of the obscure ailments with which racing greyhounds can be afflicted. Unfortunately, the majority of veterinarians who care for these dogs after placed into adoptive homes are far less likely to consider some of the less common diagnoses.
Finding a veterinarian who is qualified to care for retired racing greyhounds is not as easy as asking “Do you have any experience with racing greyhounds? Absolutely, I trained on greyhounds in vet school! The truth is, yes, most vets have trained on greyhounds because of the common practice of disposing of unsuccessful or injured racing greyhounds by giving them to vet schools. States that do not have greyhound race tracks will be in especially short supply of greyhound experts, so it may be your responsibility to obtain information for your veterinarian that will assist in caring for your retired racer.
