Snow Ice Snow
As we are having a very cold week, icy and snow. I thought I would share with you some tips to help keep your pet(s) warm and safe during this time.
Coming back in from the cold into the dry heat of your home can cause itchy, flaking skin. Keep your home humidified and towel dry your pet as soon as they comes inside, paying special attention to his feet and in-between the toes. Remove any snow balls from between his foot pads.
When you get home after your walk, wash and dry your pet’s feet and stomach to remove ice, salt and chemicals and check for cracks in paw pads or redness between the toes.
Also antifreeze is a lethal poison for dogs and cats. Make sure to thoroughly clean up any spills from your vehicle.
If it’s too cold for you outside than it’s probably too cold for your pet, so keep your animals inside.
Make sure your pet(s) have a warm place to sleep, off the floor and away from all drafts. A soft cozy dog or cat bed with a warm blanket or pillow.
