Please don’t put shoes or socks on your dog as dogs cool themselves through their paws and mouth. Don’t trap heat in.
You can tell your dog’s paws are burning if the dog is limping while walking or refusing to walk by pulling on the leash. Darkened skin is a sign and heavy licking and chewing of the paws. These tips are courtesy of the Texas Veterinary Medical Foundation.
