Heißer Asphalt – Gefahr für die Pfötchen im Sommer?

Hot asphalt – a danger to paws in summer?

10 mins

When temperatures rise, hot asphalt can pose a serious threat to your dog's paws. At alphazoo you will find valuable advice on how to protect your four-legged friend during the heat season.

Understanding the Root Cause - Why Asphalt is a Problem

Has your body ever experienced hot pavement under bare feet in high temperatures? This is just as uncomfortable for your dog. Since dogs give off their heat through their paws, very hot asphalt can not only stress them but also burn them.

Avoidance is key - choose the right time for walks

It's better to plan your walks in the cooler morning and evening hours. If this is not possible, choose shady paths or those with grass or gravel instead of asphalt.

Paw protection - How you can protect your dog's paws

There are different methods to protect your dog's paws. You can use paw balm , paw liquids , or even special dog boots to protect your dog's paws from the hot asphalt.

What to do when it's too late? - Treating burnt paws

If your dog does suffer a burn, it is important to act quickly. Cool the paw with cold water and contact your veterinarian.

Practice wearing dog shoes with your dog

Many dogs do not immediately get used to wearing dog shoes. Therefore, getting used to it gradually is a good method, especially if you plan to use it regularly.

Conclusion

  • Understand that hot asphalt can burn your dog's paws.
  • Plan walks in the cooler mornings and evenings or on shady, unpaved paths.
  • Protect your dog's paws with protective creams, waxes or dog shoes.
  • In the event of a burn, immediately cool the paw with cold water and consult a veterinarian.
  • Get your dog used to wearing dog shoes step by step if you plan to use them regularly.

Always remember that your dog's paws are very sensitive and it is your job to protect them as best as possible. A safe and happy dog ​​is a happy owner!
