We realize that our animals are in direct contact with these surfaces and their fingertips
are sensitive to everything they trample. Certainly Fido would prefer to go for meadows rather than walk on asphalt,
but around the city there is not much alternative.
What to do then?
If our dog's paws are hurting we will notice it immediately, we will see it hopping on the spot
to avoid getting burned. If the outside temperature is 30 degrees, the asphalt will measure 55 degrees
and increase exponentially as the outside temperature increases. Of course, going out in the warmer
hours is to be avoided regardless, especially if Fido is no longer so young. Then there are some
breathable shoes suitable for protecting the bearings, but not all dogs willingly accept them.
Creams and moisturizing sprays help, there are specially designed for the dogs' cushions, but also
a moisturizing hand cream can be fine, with the foresight of make it absorb well to avoid
that I trust the lick. Finally, if we are forced to take it outside during peak hours, let us allow it
every 15-20 minutes to cool off in a cool place that can give it relief. And water always available!
