Health Tip: Summer Paw Health

Walking surfaces such as asphalt, concrete pavers and beach sand can be really hot in the summer sun.

You protect your feet by wearing shoes, sneaks, sandals and flip flops. Unprotected paws can get burned – burns that can land your dog at the vet.

Have your dog wear booties if you walk on hot surfaces, and apply a paw protectant like Max Wax to prevent cracked and dry paws. #pawz #maxwax https://www.avma.org/public/PetCare/Pages/summer.aspx
