Lebanon Police Ask Not To Leave Pets In Cars

The Lebanon Police Department received several calls regarding pets in cars during hot weather and are asking people not to leave pets in a car on hot days. A cracked window has little effect on the rate of heating and temperature inside a car after an hour. If an animal shows symptoms of heatstroke, take steps to gradually lower their body temperature by moving them into the shade or an air-conditioned area, applying ice packs to their head, neck, chest or immerse them in cool (not cold)water, let them drink small amounts of water or lick ice cubes, and get to a vet immediately
