|We all know the feeling of stepping barefoot onto hot pavement, and one word comes to mind: OUCH! Remember that your dog’s paws also experience the extreme summer heat and can take a beating when the mercury rises.
Protect those paws from the blistering sun, asphalt and sand. Make sure that after long walks, you give your pets paws a pampering by moisturizing with a soothing, all-natural paw balm.
For minor burns, apply antibacterial wash and aloe vera and cover the paw with a loose bandage. For serious burns, visit your vet immediately.
