Summer is here and the heat is on! Have you noticed your pup trying to avoid that hot, black asphalt on your walks? Dogs’ pads are incredibly sensitive, therefore, the asphalt can be extremely harmful. One of our customers recently brought their 10-week-old Husky puppy in with burnt, cracking pads due to the hot pavement. The owner had taken him on a long run on the asphalt; this poor pup barely wanted to stand on his paws!
We highly recommend covering your pup’s paws up by wearing socks or boots during this summer heat, especially if you take your pup on long mid-day walks or runs. Not only do they look super stylish, they protect your pups’ sensitive pads from the scorching asphalt! If the damage has already been done, like the Husky’s, we recommend using Vetericyn Wound and Skin Care Spray to disinfect and clean your pups’ paws. After the paws have been sprayed, bandage them with the Pawflex Bandages while their paws heal is. You can find these products at any of our Muttropolis locations or on our website!
