Is it teething time for your little one?
Last week saw some of the most beautiful weather so far this year but along with the gorgeous sunshine came terrible stories of people leaving their pets and even children in the car.
Despite the constant warnings, we still hear these stories whenever temperatures spike.
One woman who has had enough is Jess Ritchie who took to social media to highlight the dangers of leaving your pet trapped in a hot vehicle.
The 24-year-old spent 10 minutes in her car with no air-con and with the windows closed, conditions which pets find themselves in too often.
Jess opens the video by saying she has been driving around with the air-con on and is still boiling hot.
Measuring at 33.7C before she even began, Jess is visibly sweltering.
She captioned the video:
"Hi everyone! So I think most of us have seen the post from Nottinghamshire police yesterday where they had to smash a car window to rescue a dog from a hot car.
Please don't leave your dogs - like Gizmo - in hot cars on days like today. More:

"I thought I'd 'try' and make a video to show how quickly cars can heat up and how uncomfortable it feels to be in one. I know it's a long vid put please bear with me!"
Within 6 minutes the car goes from 35C to 41.5C.
As the temperatures rise, Jess gets noticeably shaken and says she feels sick.
Within a few minutes, she can no longer handle the overwhelming heat as she says: "This is absolutely horrible."
"I think I might have to end this soon because it's getting extremely uncomfortable now, it's starting to make me feel quick sick to be honest with you."
Trying to share what it's like, Jess struggles to explain as she says: "I can't even think."
With the thermometer hitting a high of 41.5C, Jess has to stop.
