ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Pet Talk is a new weekly segment airing during 7@four each Wednesday. You can send us your questions through our website and ask professionals what you should do for your pet.

Phillip and Becky Farmer from Check, VA asks, “Gidget is an adopted 5 1/2-month-old Pomchi. We have had her about two and a half months and were wondering if fruits and vegetables are okay to add to her meals occasionally and/or use as treats? If so, which ones are best for dogs/puppies?”

Brian in Roanoke asks, “With summertime right around the corner, any concerns on the temperature of concrete or pavement when we walk Scout? Don’t want her to run the risk of having burns on her paw pads.”

We spoke to Julie Rickmond with the Roanoke Valley SPCA and she touched on what to do in this type of situation.
