Why this petition matters

Started by Angela Collyer

Every year we see Facebook posts about walking dogs in extreme heat. It’s something that sickens me. A dog has NEVER died of not being walked, however people still want to kill with kindness. I work at a local vet and a dog attended for routine treatment, however the owner had walked her dog to the vets in 32 degree heat. On arrival the dog was struggling to breathe and sadly overheated which resulted in the dog needing oxygen and an£800 vet bill. This needs to STOP and I feel that ‘on the spot’ fines is the only solution.
