Summer heat can take its toll on pets’ paws


THIS ON THE PATRIOTS, COMING UP AT 6:00. STEVE: WE ALL KNOW TO NEVER LEAVE A PET INSIDE A HOT CAR, BUT IT’S ALSO IMPORTANT TO BE MINDFUL OF HOT SURFACES. WITH THE SUMMER HEAT IN FULL FORCE THIS WEEK, ASPHALAND BRICK SURFACES CAN GET SCALDING HOT. ESPECIALLY DURING THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY, WHEN THE SUN IS THE STRONGEST.>>AN EASY TEST THAT YOU CAN DO TO SEE IF IT’S SAFE FOR YOUR PE IS TO TAKE THE BACK OF YOUR HAND AND PLACE IT AGAINST THE ASPHALT FOR ABOUT FIVE SECONDS IF YOU CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAINST THE ASPHALT FOR 5 SECONDS WITHOUT PULLING IT AWAY, IT’S SAFE FOR YOUR PET TO WALK ON, BUT IF YOU’RE PULLING IT AWAY, IT’S NOT.
