Dr. Isabelle Cecil in Myrtle Beach, S.C., offers crucial advice for keeping pets safe in rising temperatures. She warns that weather above 80 degrees can be dangerous for dogs, potentially leading to brain injuries, shock, or even death. Cecil emphasizes that even with a running car and air conditioner, internal temperatures can quickly become unsafe.

Walking dogs during the hottest parts of the day can also result in emergency situations. She advises pet owners to avoid walking on hot asphalt, as it can burn pets’ paws.

If a pet shows signs of overheating, bring them indoors, use ice packs, and contact a veterinarian immediately.
