That's our next guests in action on their hit animal planet show "The vet life." Joining us are the stars of the show, Dr. Aubrey Ross and Dr. Michael Lavigne. Your partner Dr. Blue wasn't able to be here because his wife is about to give birth. Right now sflp as we speak. We miss you blue. We miss you blue. But since you're not here, we're going to be joined by some adorable dogs, they're available for adoption from best friends animal society. There we go. Come here, puppy. They're playing with each other. I want some advice, if I want to adopt a dog, what are the things you should look for in terms of energy, personality? You want to make sure you pick a dog for your lifestyle. If you travel a lot you don't want to get a large-breed dog. If you're staying in an apartment or something that's small, you don't want to get a large labradoodle. You want to try to find a dog that fits you and your lifestyle. If you're working long hours, if you have a dog with a lot of energy you don't want them in the house all day long. You got to consider those things. If you do, don't blame it on the dog. That's how the dog is. You don't want to play and this dog has a lot of energy. It's summer out. It's hot out. What tips do you have for dog owners dealing with your animals in the heat? In the summertime we see a lot of issues, you know, we're down south where it gets really hot, dogs come in with heatstroke and some tips to consider, taking your pets out for walks, go either early morning or late afternoon. You don't want to take them out in the heat of the day. Sometimes the concrete or the asphalt can be really hot, so, you know, good rule of thumb is, if you can't bear it your bare feet on the pavement then the dogs may not either. We see dogs come in with pads blistered or torn off. There are things you can do, put little booties and stuff on them. You want to try these. Put them on. Start at a young age. You know, get them used to it. See, he's not too used to it. I'm not cooperating with you. He wants to play right now. You can hear the myth -- dogs can swim, can all dogs swim, is that really true or not? All dogs can swim but all dogs do not know how to swim. But in a situation like that, starting them off young you want to make sure you protect them with protective vests, life jackets. We have actually a life jacket here, Dr. Lavigne -- Some of your dogs may be natural-born swimmers. These lab mixes, they're born for the water swimming. They love to swim. A dog like this, maybe not so much. This baby girl right here -- remember, she was crying. She was crying on my lap. I put her down, she was crying because she didn't want to pee on me. Is that what it was? She Peed on the grass. I said go ahead girl. I'm so happy. She needs a home. There you go, keke. What is her mix? Can you tell by looking at her? She looks like a chihuahua mix. She sure was a sweet baby. Get them used to swimming before you just let them -- My dog loves to swim. Runs and dives into the pool. But pet owners without knowing make a lot of mistakes. What are some of the biggest mistakes that pet owners make? The number one mistake they make is, we believe, that dogs don't need their teeth brush. We brush our teeth twice a day sometimes three times a day. So, we can try to brush our dog's teeth once a day or once a they eat once, twice a day. Make sure you get those teeth nice and white. Like people. You don't want to go out with -- One of the most common things we see every day, you know, and a lot of people don't check the teeth to see, so getting in the practice of doing it, start young, getting the dogs used to getting their teeth brushed. We'll show you how to brush some teeth. Come on. What you do is, you kind of lift the lip up. Like your brushing your teeth. Get close to the gum line. The teeth are sharp, y'all. So you just go in there and just brush. Uh-oh. Go ahead. Okay. There you go, keke. I don't want to hurt you, baby. It's best to try to get an enzymatic toothpaste. Because there's toothpaste for dogs that break down the enzymes. The more you do it the better. The more you do it the better. Tell you what, thank you guys so much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you guys so much. I love your matching kicks. That's part of their uniform. Dr. Lavigne, Dr. Ross, thank you guys so much. Dr. Blue --
