NEXT WEEK. LISA: TIME NOW TO ANSWER SOME OF
YOUR PET QUESTIONS THIS
AFTERNOON. JOINING US IS A DOCTOR FROM THE
FALLS ANIMAL HOSPITAL. WHO IS THIS?>>THIS IS VEGAS, 2-YEAR-OLD,
ONE OF MY DAUGHTER’S FRIENDS’S
DOG. A LITTLE NERVOUS. ARE YOU GOING TO LIE DOWN,
VEGAS? IT’S OK. NOT SURE. [LAUGHTER]
LISA: LET’S GET TO OUR
QUESTIONS. HOW DO I PROTECT MY DOG’S PAWS
FROM THE HOT PAVEMENT WHEN I
TAKE HIM OUT FOR A WALK?>>TWO OPTIONS. TRY TO WALK HIM ON GRASS AND ON
MOTOR THINGS LIKE THAT, DIRT. THAT PREVENTS THEM FROM BEING ON
THE HOT PAVEMENT. IF YOU ARE THE CITY, THEY DO
ACTUALLY MAKE BOOTIES AND STUFF
YOU CAN USE TO PUT ON THEIR
FEET. IT IS THE SAME THING I TELL
PEOPLE DURING THE WINTER WHEN
YOU HAVE THE ICE AND SNOW, YOU
CAN USE THINGS LIKE THAT. MAKE SURE IT PROTECTS THEIR
PADS. LISA: WONDER IF THEY HAVE
SANDALS NOW?>>I DON’T THINK THEY HAVE
FLIP-FLOPS YET, BUT GIVE THEM
TIME. LISA: HERE IS A PICTURE OF YOU
ARE SENT TO US ABOUT A RASH ON
THE LEG SAYING, I’M AFRAID MY
DOG IS ALLERGIC TO GRASP. HOW DO I TREAT THAT?>>A COUPLE OF THINGS YOU WOULD
NEED TO DO FOR SURE. ONE, WHEN YOU COME IN FROM THE
OUTSIDE, THE FIRST THING YOU
WANT TO DO IS HAVE A WASH BASIN
AND WASH OFF THEIR FEET AND GET
BETWEEN THEIR TOES. NOW YOU WILL KNOW THAT YOU DON’T
HAVE THE POLLEN AND ALLERGENS ON
THEIR FEET. THAT WOULD BE PART ONE. IF YOU HAVE ANTIHISTAMINES, YOU
CAN TRY SOMETHING LIKE THAT. IT WILL HELP DECREASE SOME OF
THE HISTAMINE AND ITCHINESS. LISA: VEGAS IS VERY WELL
BEHAVED. VEGAS IS READY TO GO.
