Everyone is very happy in the summer. The beautiful sunny weather makes you want to take a stroll and soak up the sun. All that we have to remember about is good sunscreen, something to cover your head with and adequate hydration of the body. On hot days, you have to drink at least eight cups of water!
We know how to properly take care of ourselves, but we often forget about our four-legged companions. They also need proper care and hydration. Since they have a thick coat, they don’t need to be covered with a cosmetic that has a UV filter, but the delicate skin on their paws cannot be neglected.
We’re speaking mainly about dogs. We take pets for walks in warm weather, not thinking that we can possibly harm them by doing so. Sometimes they’re walking for a long time on hot asphalt, which can cause painful abrasions and damage to the skin of their paws.
Here’s what will happen when your dog will walk on heated surfaces! Always check the temperature of the pavement or road. If it is too hot for you, it is also too hot for your pet! – reads a Facebook page titled Hip Dog Canine Hydrotherapy & Fitness.
