Winter Coat and Skin Needs

Now that the cold weather is upon us, so it the start of the dry skin season as well.   You may notice your beloved pet scratch more in the winter, and you may think that he or she may have fleas.  If you have been treating your pet for parasites during the spring and summer months, then the likely culprit is dry skin.

The cold winter air is dry and the use of forced air heating can make it worse on pets that already have issues with skin conditions.  There are some simple solutions to the problem:

1) If you have a humidifier attached to your furnace, make sure that it is on, and set at the correct setting according to the temperature outside.  Usually it's 15% humidity for -20 degrees and  35% humidity for +20 degrees.  Check your manual for the correct setting.

2) If you don't have a humidifier, you can pick an inexpensive one to do the trick!

3) If you are on a budget, you can do it the old fashion way, simmer a large pot of water on the stove while you are home.

4) If you have to leave home for the day, simmer water on a low setting in your crock pot with the lid off to add moisture.

5) When taking a hot bath or shower, leave the door open so the moisture can get into other rooms of the house. 

6) If you are not already doing so, make sure you ask your mobile stylist to add a moisturizer to your pet's winter grooming regime.

Always have your vet or mobile stylist check your pet for any signs of parasites if you have not used a monthly flea and tick preventative during the warmer months.
