Protecting your dog's paws from the hot pavement. Hemp Well has you covered.
Hot pavement is one hazard that pet parents often overlook. During walks on hot days, the pavement can get incredibly hot, making it painful for your pup to walk on. There are a few things you can do to protect your dog's paws from hot pavement.
First, try to walk on grassy areas as much as possible. If you must walk on pavement, try to stick to the shady areas.
You can also put paw protection on your dog's paws. This can be anything from dog socks to special waxes and balms. Be sure to reapply regularly, especially if you are walking in hot areas often.
Your dog's paws are made for walking on soft, natural surfaces like dirt, grass, and snow. But when summer comes around, you might find yourself taking your pup for more walks on hot pavement. Asphalt temperatures can climb well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, which can cause burns and blisters on your dog's paw pads.
If the pavement is too hot for your hand, it's probably too hot for your dog's paws.
When the weather gets hot, one of the first places you notice it is on your skin. The pavement is no different. It can get so hot that it hurts to walk on bare skin, and it's even worse for your pup. Their pads are much thinner than our skin and can burn easily. That's why it's important to take care when walking your dog on hot pavement, especially during the summer months.
If you are able, try to walk them early in the morning or late at night when the pavement has had a chance to cool down.
