On very hot days, limit exercise to early morning or evening hours, and be especially careful with short-nosed pets, who typically have difficulty breathing. Asphalt gets very hot and can burn your pet's paws, so walk your dog on the grass if possible. Always carry water with you to keep your dog from dehydrating.
Lilly was first diagnosed with kidney and bladder stones a few years ago. She had surgery to remove her bladder stones. Unfortunately, surgery to remove kidney stones can be very dangerous and usually is only done if the stones are going to obstruct the kidney. Sadly, this was the case a couple years later for poor Lilly, and she had to have a stent placed in her ureter at the specialty center. All was well again until recently, when she came in lethargic and in pain.
