The animal was left trapped in the heat whilst its owners went for a hospital appointment.

  • It happened on 16 July around 4.30pm
  • Member of the public reported a dog had been left in a hot car for an hour at Salisbury District Hospital
  • When Police arrived they noticed that the parking ticket had been issued at midday
  • The windows were open slightly but not enough, and the dog had no water

It's a blessing that the Police officers were able to open the door of the car and take the dog to Endell Vets.

Fortunately the dog was okay.

This reminder posted from Wiltshire Police is perfectly clear. Dogs die in hot cars.

A police spokesperson said:

"We caught up with the owners who stated that their appointment at the hospital had overrun."

"Strong advice was given and they collected the dog."

"Make safe arrangements for your dog's welfare, don't make them suffer in a hot car whilst you go to appointments or shopping."
