pavements and sand

Post by Jean » 29 May 2023, 08:18

Can I remind everyone that if you cant walk in your bare feet on either pavement, or sand, then your dog definitely cannot

also their fur can get very hot in the sun if they go in the water , and burn their skin, keep cold ish water, and a damp cloth for their heads if you go a walk

its hot over here in UK at the moment


Cheers

great "rule of thumb" to go by and easy to remember !
Olesia, was owned by Izzy, a 35lb Spanish Water Dog (SWD), Diagnosed at 1.5 years old - TLI results 1.. Izzy passed away on February 13, 2020 at 15 years old. She lived with EPI for 13+1/2 years. It was because of Izzy that Epi4Dogs was started... she was the inspiration. May her legacy of helping others with EPI continue for as long as needed.........

Thank you, Jean for this reminder. We are coming up on a hot week here in Northeast US, so it is a timely caution. It probably won't get too hot yet, but we can do some practicing. Thanks, Jean.

Montgomery has a really neat mat for his stroller. I put it in the freezer and then slip it into a pillowcase, so that if we have to go out in the heat, he stays cool. He says he's descended from the great cats of the Pharohs, a little desert creature, and he will not drink water for love or money, so this thing makes a massive difference. I can't say he's overly thrilled by it, but he likes it better than having his ears wet down.
Montgomery was born 20 March 2012. He is SUPPOSED to be eating a home-cooked diet, but refuses. He eats Purina True Instinct Grain-Free Chicken and whatever chicken-based tinned food we can entice him with. Nine pounds of pure stubbornness. He gets two size 0 capsules of Enzyme Diane at each meal and one size 4 capsule of Tylosin three times daily. Sometimes he gets Petromalt. He's our little Spitfire, and when he purrs you KNOW he's got a real Merlin engine. Lately, he's taken to giving hugs. His hobbies include shooting marbles, shredding cardboard, and irritating his sister.

No! I'm going to go check it out now, though!
I don't drive, and cats don't get sick when it's convenient or the weather is good, so we have to get a little creative sometimes. I think K&H made it? I think...There really are so many neat ideas for pets out there, it's just a matter of finding what works.
