Jack Frost Nipping at their toes

Dogs are just big kids no matter the size!  The first sign of snow, my dogs go NUTS!   They would play in it for hours if they could.  As a pet parent we have to protect our four legged children from the dangers of frostbite.  It can occur in as little as 10 minutes of exposure to the snow and frigid temperatures.  Here are some quick tips for protection:

1)  If you walk your pet like I do, make sure you have a good pair of boots available for use.  My favorites are the Paw Tectors. They are durable and waterproof.   I found them for a good deal at: www.dog.com.   Once they understand that warm feet means extended outdoor play time using them is a snap!
If you need tips to keeping boots on the feet, let me know!  I will share what I have learned over the years.

2) If your pup is a yard runner, they still need protection!  You can pick up some vitamin E cream at your local drug or vitamin store.  Rub a thin layer on the pad and in the V of each foot before they go out.  It will NOT give as much protection as a boot, but it will decrease the burning effects of salt and cold.
**Be sure to wipe the feet when they come back in to decrease the mess and to remove any ice and snow in the pads.

3)  Be sure to use "pet safe" salt on your walkways.  It will decrease the risk of burning the pads.

4)  Have your mobile stylist add a paw pad moisture treatment to your next service.  It will help to hydrate dry cracked pads, and remove the "locker room" smell from them too!
**Please note**  If your pet has a chronic brittle paw pad condition, it may be a sign of a health issue.  Always consult with your vet if you notice any issues with your pet's paw pads. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Your comments are always welcome!
