Heat-humidity to remain in the Valley all week – stay hydrated and protect your pets

Alle-Kiski Valley, Pa. – Residents of the Valley are urged to take precautions over the next several days as heat and humidity continue to rise with no end in sight until possibly early next week.

If you’re lucky enough, a few areas might see a pop-up shower or storm, but most areas will not see any rain today. It’s important to keep your pets hydrated and cool during the heat wave.

Pets in Vehicles: One of the most life-threatening mistakes people can make is to leave a dog in a vehicle in hot weather. Dogs can’t perspire, as humans do, to cool themselves off via evaporation, so they have to pant to cool themselves. If the air that they are taking in is too hot (as it is in a parked car in hot weather), then panting has little cooling effect and the dog quickly overheats.
