The 5 News Weather team has predicted temperatures will reach the 90's this week.

As the weather the warms up it's a good idea to keep an eye on your pets.

Dr. Aaron Pollock, a veterinarian with the Hillcrest Veterinary Clinic, said if you're going to take your pet outside you need to give them access to water and shade.

Pollock suggested if you're going to take your pet for a ride you need to have a destination in mind. He also warned to never leave them in the car.

"I challenge (anyone) to sit in your car for 20 minutes with the windows cracked," he said. "(Humans) can sweat, but your pets are going to struggle."

Anyone caught leaving their furry friend in the car in the Mountain State could face criminal charges.
