Be Careful Of Dogs' Paws, Coats In Summer Heat

Texas A&M Agrilife

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.  

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
