The More You Know!Those hot temps have joined us and we believe it’s important to share with those pet owners that take your pets mainly dogs out with you on your travels whether to the park, the store, on a jog or just a family outing. Please be mindful of the temperature of the pavement when doing so. Hot pavement can burn a dog's paws and increase their body temperature, which can lead to heat stroke. Pavement can be much hotter than the air temperature, especially if it's in direct sunlight, windy, or humid. For example, on a 90°F day, asphalt can reach 150°F, and concrete can reach 104°F. Here are some tips to protect your dog's paws from hot pavement:Check the pavementBefore walking your dog, place the back of your hand on the pavement for five to seven seconds. If it's too hot for you, it's probably too hot for your dog.Walk during cooler timesTry to walk your dog in the morning or late evening when the pavement is cooler. Avoid walking during the hottest part of the day, like in the afternoon.Stay on grassWalk your dog on grass or in shady areas instead of on sidewalks or paved areas.Check your dog's pawsAfter walking, check your dog's paw pads for any signs of damage and wash their paws frequently with water and antibacterial soap. If your dog's paws are burned, you can flush them with cool water for 10 to 15 minutes and let them rest. In the instance of any injury please contact your veterinarian or seek care at an emergency clinic should the need arise. Let’s keep our babies safe, happy and healthy. See MoreSee Less

We recently came across a post on social media that was from one of our local veterinary offices. Not sure about you but I had never really thought about the need of supplies for veterinary offices. I’ll share with you the post. Some may not need it but it doesn’t hurt to check with your local veterinary offices, especially the small town offices and small town shelters to see if they have a need for any items. Not only does it help others in need, it helps free up space of unwanted or unused items you may have around your home. Happy Tuesday! See MoreSee Less

Did you know?Jerome Horwitz, famous for playing CURLY in "THE THREE STOOGES", was known to all as a protector of dogs. Curly's contract with Columbia Pictures included a clause that allowed his dogs to accompany him on the studio lot. Columbia limited it to no more than two dogs at a time, this due to the puppies' unplanned on-camera appearances from time to time. You can still see those surprise dog on set invasions in the first few short films. Typically surrounded by various dogs, Curly was known to come home with a stray dog ​​and foster it until he could find it a permanent home. When the Stooges were out on the road, Curly took it upon himself to find a new home for at least one stray dog ​​in every town they visited. Curly is estimated to have saved and rescued more than 5,000 dogs in his lifetime. This makes him a man ahead of his time, with a very admirable concern for man's best friend. Dogs are family ❤ See MoreSee Less
