Winter is coming.
Routines are a great way to keep healthy habits in check. However, there is a seasonality to our routines for ourselves, and out pets.
As the summer season fades, so do the concerns of seasonal pests and heat related issues. It can be a relief, but there are things to consider to protect your pet from the chill.
While we may have thick boots to protect our feet, our pets paws are usually left to the elements. As temperatures dip to extremes, this can wear at our furry friend’s pads.
For the more active dogs, boots are a great way to insulate their paws so they can be free to explore the world. It can take some time for them to get used to the new accessory, but it can save your pup from painful and damaging effects of the cold.
Additionally, paw balm is a great way to condition dry and damaged paws. Our team prefers something organic and natural since our pets may have the tendency to lick it.
Depending on the breed or coarseness of your pet’s fur, clothing is another thing to consider. Especially in snow climates, a sweater can insulate a dog so they can remain healthy and comfortable when stepping outside.
We all know to stay hydrated in the summer, but winter is just as bad a culprit. Encouraging your dog to drink water and finding a way to keep their skin and fur moisturized can prevent innumerable problems.
Addressing these common problems can help bypass larger problems and keep the winter sparkling in all the right ways.
