Hot & Burnt Paws: Dogs feel the burn too!

Hot & Burnt Paws: Dogs feel the burn too!

We all know what it is like, when bare feet come into contact with a hot surface, be it a footpath, beach, road or something similar. At the very least, we feel the heat and make a hasty retreat and at the worst, we can end up with badly burnt feet.

Dogs feet are just as sensitive as our feet, they feel the burn too. So with summer upon us, it pays to be mindful, when and where you walk your dog.

If the surface you are walking on is too hot for your feet or the back of your hand, (5-7 seconds test) then it is too hot for your dog.

It doesn’t take much time for pads to burn and blister and depending on the severity, they can become prone to infection and take a while to heal. Initially, cool water can help sooth them but a trip to your local vet, may very well be needed.

If you want some more ideas on how to keep your dog cool, during the summer months, have a read of: Travelling with Dogs: Hot Days, Cool Dogs. Plus check out the graphic below.
