Dr. Karri McCreary, co-owner of the Greenville Animal Hospital, provides advice on taking care of pets in hot weather.  In particular, Dr. McCreary says if pavement is too hot for your feet, it's probably too hot for your dog's paws, unless the dog is very accustomed to being outside and on the pavement.  And she says brush your dog's fur in the summer, removing the loose winter undercoat, but don't closely trim them.
