Keep Your Dog Cool in the Heat

This video features some practical, simple ways to keep your pet from getting overheated. A new one to me—and a great idea—is rubbing aloe vera gel or Vitamin E oil on a dog's foot pads before hitting the hot pavement. And chicken broth ice cubes = genius!

Dr. Eric Barchas, our resident vet, also has some great suggestions over at the Vet Blog.
