TIPS AND TRICKS TO GET THROUGH THE WINTER:
- De-icers :Salt and ice melting chemicals that people use can be irritating to your dogs paws. Wash your dogs paws after each walk.
- Antifreeze: Try and keep away from your dog. Car antifreeze is very appealing to dogs but also very deadly.
- Protect fur coat: Harsh weather conditions can dry your dogs coat and skin. A dogs coat tends to mat and tangle more during winter. Fur thats matted and ungroomed is less able to retain heat and cannot adequately protect your dog from the elements. Be sure to check and clean their paws regularly in order to avoid painful sores and frostbite.
- Adjust nutrition: Feed your dog more foods with protein and nutrients . Because their bodies will require extra calories to generate extra body heat to keep warm during winter.
Have a nice winter..
