Snow, Sleet, Ice…

The winter challenges are here, whether we like them or not. We need to be prepared for them!!!

 

  • Chapped paws and itchy, flaky skin are just a few of the winter skin issues. Keeping the paws and belly wiped off after each trip outside will help keep the snow from chapping the paws, clear any ice-melt that is caught in the hair, and keeping areas dry/clean.

 

  • Do NOT shave dog / cat fur down to the skin in the winter. The longer coat acts like a jacket. It helps keep their body heat closer to their bodies. When dogs go outside they need to keep up their average temperature of 100F. Longer hair for the cats helps counter act the window temperature on their skin.

 

  • Know your dog's limits. A husky can, and probably wants to stay outside in the snow longer than say a Great Dane or Chihuahua. If you need to stay outside longer than you think your dog would want to, you may want to invest in a winter coat and booties for your fur friend

 

  • Check your car before starting it. Cats (outdoor / strays) like to sleep under the hoods (on warm engines) and inside car wheels out of the wind and cold.

 

  • When going on walks – reflective gear is a great idea so that you can be visible with the decrease day light time. Keep walks short. The cold, ice-melt, snow, ice, etc.. can be hard on your friend's paws. Leash walks are ideal due to the lack of scents that the snow can cover up, which is how many pets become lost during the winter season. Avoid ice and icy areas. These are places that slipping is most dangerous.
