How Hot is Your Car?

An enclosed car heats up quicker then you would think. According to a study by San Francisco State University the interior of your car can be 40 degrees higher then the outside temperature. For example if it is 80°Foutside the temperature in a car raises to 99°F in just 10 minutes, and to 109°F in 20 minutes. Even leaving the window open a crack only helps by a few degrees. A dog’s normal body temperature is between 101 to 102.5.  Placed into a car on a hot day, after a short time the dog could suffer nerve damage, heart problems, liver damage, brain damage, or death.

What is Carob?

The two typical questions I get, from customers are, “That’s not chocolate is it?” and “What is carob?”  Carob is not chocolate and is OK  for both your dog and yourself.  It is free of the alkaloid and addictive effects of caffeine and theobromine present in cocoa. The tree (Ceratonia siliqua) is from the legume (pea) family. It grows anywhere citrus can be grown. Typically it is found in the Mediterranean. You may have also heard carob trees called St John’s bread or the locust bean. Carob comes from a tropical pod that a contains sweet, edible seeds. The fruit of...
