At Animal Health Veterinary Group, our veterinarian in Staten Island reminds dog owners to protect their dog's paws from the summer heat. At a temperature of only 77 degrees Fahrenheit, pavement heats up to 125 degrees – hot enough to burn your dog's paw pads after only a minute of contact. The following tips will help you keep your dog's paws safe and healthy all summer long.
During the summer months, parasites like fleas, ticks, and mosquitos carrying heartworm are more prevalent, and parasite prevention is more important than ever. Schedule an appointment with a veterinarian at one of our Staten Island Animal Hospital locations, also serving Bayonne, to learn about which parasite protection products we recommend for your cats and dogs. To schedule an appointment, you may contact our Castleton Avenue office at (718) 448-3680 or our Hylan Boulevard location at (718) 980-6491.
