This unique thermometer with its fun artwork is designed to raise awareness of dog car safety and bring attention to the possible hazards of leaving pets too long in a vehicle or any enclosed area during any season.
"Few things are as tragic as the loss of a pet to heat stroke. If you travel with a pet, you need this thermometer!" Dr. Eric Delmar, DVM - University of Georgia
Leaving a dog in the car is one of the most common causes of heatstroke. On a mild 70-degree day, a closed car can heat up to 120į in a matter of minutes. Because dogs canít cool off effectively while sitting in an oven-like car, they can quickly overheat. Cracking the windows or parking in the shade may not significantly reduce the carís temperature.

Dogs can also suffer heat exposure at home. On a warm day, a concrete dog run can heat up quickly. A backyard that lacks shade, or with fencing that blocks cooling breezes, may make the dogís environment many degrees hotter than you think. Walks on warm days can also pose a risk. Hot asphalt and concrete can reflect heat, both creating an uncomfortable walking surface and increasing the risk of overheating.
Vacation time can pose extra risks for dogs. Vacations often lead us to different environments and climates Ė and often into the heat. Hanging out at a campsite, hiking on a warm day, even riding in a boat can put a dog at risk for heat-related illness. Beaches, especially if the dog is not inclined to cool off in the water, are also a risk. A dog traveling in the back of a car may get too much sun exposure through the window.

Living in the desert southwest of New Mexico and working for our local veterinarian, I am constantly amazed when I hear stories of pets being left in vehicles and succumbing to hyperthermia/heatstroke.
Suddenly, one day, I had an epiphany! What if there was a device that could raise awareness to this issue?
Thus the research began and I went to work developing the IS IT TOO HOT FOR SPOT? static cling window thermometer.
This thermometer is designed to give pet owners real time information to make intelligent choices when traveling with their pets.
This visual aid also serves as an educational and safety tool for non pet owners.
We are happy that the idea is being embraced by a cross section of individuals, from pet owners, breeders, pet shop owners, automotive supply stores, pet safety instructors and veterinarians.
Please join us in our mission to keep all of our pets happy, healthy and safe!
