“I was really surprised, you know I’ve practiced a long time and I’ve seen a lot of hypothermic animals. But normally it’s like an accidental kind of a thing where the kids leave the door open and the cat gets out or the dog gets out nobody knows about it for a couple hours and they might get a little cold versus this was a little bit kind of a different situation to have it actually packed around” Dr. Javon Clark said.

Dr. Clark says to avoid this happening to one of your pets, make sure you have fresh water and a bed for your pet outside in case they get stuck. That way they’re not on the cold hard ground and can stay hydrated in a pinch.
