With temperatures soaring around the nation, experts are warning pet owners to take extra caution. Veterinarians say it’s important to limit the amount of time dogs are on hot pavement and concrete while out on walks. In addition, putting rubbing alcohol on their paw’s foot pads can help cool them down. Just like humans, dogs and cats need plenty of water and shade as the mercury rises. Also, with ticks and fleas more common during the warm months, owners need to be on the lookout as well.
