In the searing Arizona summers, sidewalks and roadways can become hot enough to fry an egg. Now, imagine what a scorching surface can do to the bottom of a dog’s paw.
Tempe-based homebuilder Fulton Homes has now teamed up with 100.7 KSLX to bring awareness to the public about how sizzling sidewalks and roadways can injure canines.
The temperature and length of time a human or dog can tolerate walking on a hot surface are the same, but most people do not realize that their dog’s padding are similar to their own feet. Studies have shown that the skin on the bottom of a dog’s paw will redden and burn after just five minutes on a 120-degree surface. After one minute on a 140-degree surface paws will burn, leaving permanent damage. At 150 degrees, rapid burns and blistering occur, resulting in permanent nerve damage.
