Our pets love the outdoors. But when the weather is extreme it's our job to protect them and take the necessary steps to keep them safe.
During the summer, with temperatures reaching into the triple digits in some areas, a good rule of thumb is if you can't hold your hand palm side up on the pavement for more than 5 seconds, it's too hot for your dog to be on the pavement. If you have access to a grassy area, keep them on it, or drive them to a nearby park, or invest in a pair of Ultra Paws Durable Dog Boots .
The same holds true for extreme cold weather. Dogs and cats can suffer from frostbite just as humans can. Letting your animals outside or walking them in extreme cold weather can put them at risk. If you live in an area where temperatures hover around or below the freezing mark, you can do your pet a favor by investing in a pair of Ultra Paws Durable Dog Boots . These boots not only protect your four-legged friend from extreme weather, they also help to keep their paws clean and dry.
