Wipe those paws
Winter is definitely here and we need to pay extra attention to our pets exposure to the cold and their feet.
Winter’s frigid weather is tough on your dog. Exposure to cold, dry air or prolonged contact with ice and snow can leave paws dry, cracked, itchy and peeling. Coming back inside provides much-needed warmth but the artificially-heated air is still extremely dry, meaning their skin will continue to suffer.
Additionally, salt on dog's paws can cause excessive dryness, cracking, or even burns of paw pads, especially with prolonged or repeated exposure. With any paw discomfort, a pup might lick or chew excessively, which can make the issue worse and lead to an infection.
It’s a good idea to carry a towel along during winter walks so you can wipe snow, ice and salt off your dog’s paws and belly anytime it’s necessary.
Getting Your Cat To The Veterinarian
Providing your cat with good health care, especially preventive health care, can allow her to live a longer, more comfortable life. However, this cannot happen unless you take your cat to see the veterinarian routinely.
Many cats dislike going to the veterinarian, and that usually starts with the difficulty of getting your cat into the carrier. Once you’ve mastered how to get your cat into their carrier, the entire veterinary visit is usually less stressful.
