Dogs still being left in cars despite heatwave

It's one of the hottest days of the year and they're still getting calls about dogs being left in cars.

Cambridgeshire Police responded to another report in Fenland today (23rd July).

Temperatures are reaching 31 degrees and inside a vehicle that temperature can reach 47 degrees within an hour.

Officers are urging us to call them on 999 if we see a dog in distress or danger because of this.

The force said in a Facebook post:

"We're not sure we can be much clearer - dogs die in hot cars."

How can I tell if a dog is suffering?

Look for:

  • Heavy panting
  • Salivation
  • A rapid pulse
  • Very red gums and tongue
  • Lethargy
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Lack of coordination
