Protect the Paw | Some Helpful Advice
Summer is a #time when we forget that our #furkids #paws are #sensitive and on #hot surfaces a lot. This #week I have paid close #attention to the #dogs being #walked in my #neighborhood of #WestEnd #Brisbane in preparation for this #blog post. This is what I found:
*dogs being walked in the middle of the day on bitumen;
*dogs being walked in the afternoon on footpaths that have still not cooled down; and
Of course it is amazing to see all these #furkids out and about however these were not one off sightings, I saw them multiple times and this #concerns me. We have been hitting mid 30 degrees everyday for weeks now so imagine the #heat in the concrete and roads that we are making our fur kids walk on. Too #hot!
Here are my #tips before taking your fur kid anywhere this summer:
* Put the top of your hand on any surface you are going to walk your fur kid on. If you cannot hold it there for 5 seconds your fur kid should not be walking or sitting on it;
barefoot in summer because the ground is HOT so keep this in mind for your fur kid.
