Well done, Bryan. The entire article is worthy of a read by poochophiles:
Burned Dog Paws Warning
Actually a touching story of the dog's recovery with stem cells.

Article includes this from vet info re: best way to prevent damage from ashphalt.
Dog Feet Protection from Hot Surfaces

That does not belittle the fact that responsible pet owners need to take care of their pets but, as several as pointed out, normal per walking in TV anytime should not injure your pet - uncomfortable, maybe but serious injury - unlikely!
Thanks Bryan.

My dog has reddened feet and ears and itch, went to vet and I feel this is the result of a new flea med she was on called Trifexis, oral medication she received 2 monthly doses had to give her Benadryl to keep her from chewing her feet. Called manufacture and received rebate. Well put her on Revolution that she was on before. A lot of info on the net about this drug.

[QUOTE=zcaveman;709647]I wonder where this occurred. It seems a little extreme.

Don't get me wrong. I feel for the little guys. But I walked Bart all over our part TV back from 2001 until 2007. I walked barefoot all over Jacksonville, Fl. and Jacksonville Beach, Fl. from 1950 until 1976 and so did my dogs. And NEVER did the pavement get so hot that me or Bart or the other dogs got those kind of burns.

I think this needs to be investigated.

It doesns't need to be investigated.
That is what a dog's feet will look like if walked
in the blazing heat of the day on black top.

You walked barefoot "all over Jacksonville?"
Uhhhh . . .
