With record temperatures around the country, it is important to keep your dogs cool. Gresham Animal Hospital would like to help everyone keep their pets safe this summer. Read our Safe Summer Tip #2 for a Happy Dog below.
Use doggie boots.
You can find these at your local pet supply store. If you can’t walk your dog during the early and later hours of the day, this is a good way of protecting him. Heat rises from the ground, especially on surfaces like cement and asphalt, and dogs absorb and release heat through their feet. Just like boots prevent the dog from absorbing the cold in the winter, they also isolate heat.
