HEAT WARNING: Pavement/Asphalt TOO HOT for Dog’s Paws!

HOT ASPHALT!These photos were taken at lunchtime today.  It’s even hotter now and will be hottest around 4:00 pm.  These temperatures show how a cement sidewalk, surface temperature shown on the left, can be much cooler than pavement/asphalt, surface temperature shown on right.  Please consider your pets paws when walking them on a hot sunny day.  Note: These photos were taken about 2 feet apart… amazing difference!  Here is some important information on Burned Pads on Dogs: http://vetmedicine.about.com/od/diseasesconditionsfaqs/qt/hotfeet.htm
