With the snow getting ready to drizzle down for the winter, thinking about how to keep your pooch safe from the harsh conditions is a top priority!
So to save your dog the trouble of he/she trying to rub some chap stick on it's paws, follow these tips:
Bring a towel on long walks to clean off irritated paws. After each walk, wash and dry your pet’s feet to remove ice, salt and chemicals—and check for cracks in paw pads or redness between the toes.
Booties for your pet’s paws help minimize contact with painful salt crystals, poisonous anti-freeze and chemical ice-melting agents. They can also help prevent irritating sand and salt from getting lodged in between bare toes.
Massage petroleum jelly into paw pads before going outside to protect them from salt and chemical agents. Also, moisturizing can help heal chapped paws.
Now all you need to do is get your CUTEz pet a nice coat, stylish collar and adorable hat, and you're all set for the wintertide!!
But SRSLY, make sure you follow these tips because there's nothing worse than playing in the snow with injured paws!!
