RSPCA warns over hot car danger.
RSPCA Cymru last year received more than 125 calls relating to 200 dogs locked in hot cars at supermarkets, outdoor events and out on the roads.
With the outdoor events season about to get into full swing, the RSPCA has issued its regular appeal to owners to keep their dogs safe in the sun. But this year people are being reminded that it is not just cars that pose a risk to dogs, but also conservatories and caravans.
RSPCA chief veterinary adviser Mark Evans said: "A hot car can be a death trap for dogs, it is as simple as that.
"Leaving your dog in a car, even on an average warm, even cloudy, summer day, can put your pet at huge risk of suffering and even death."
