Whether your fluffy partner is an indoor snuggle buddy or an outdoor adventurer, they’re bound to get a little snow on their fur. Here are some tips keep your pet happy and cozy through the cold:
- Paw Washing: Taking your dog out on snowy walks in the winter can be an adventure to remember, but be sure that you wash their paws afterwards. While they might love sprinting and rolling in the snow, the salted sidewalks and roads can irritate their paws. A simple washing and drying of your dog’s paws after each walk goes a long way to making sure your pup is happy and healthy.
- Long Fur: Keep your dog’s hair long through the winter months! This will help them to stay warm while the weather is cold. Short-haired dogs might appreciate a sweater, though!
- Check the Engine: Sometimes cats will try to keep warm in the most inconvenient of places, like under the hood of your car. Often times a simple knock to the hood of your car will startle the cat into meowing or leaving altogether.
- Staying Warm: Don’t forget to set out an extra blanket for your pet. They’ll appreciate it!
