|Pet boots provide protection from hot pavement|
Dogs in wheelchairs frequently wade in the water from beaches alongside lakes and oceans. While we encourage keeping your elderly, disabled or injured pets cool, we want to be certain that they are always under direct supervision. A sudden increase in the depth of the water or the effect of a wave crashing to the shore could quickly put your handicapped pet in water over his or her head. Please carefully monitor your dog in a wheelchair at all times.

Stay cool out there!
