Protecting Your Dogs Feet In Winter

Saturday, November 22, 2014
posted by Jim Murphy

Dog bootsWe protect our feet and keep them dry and warm in the cold, snowy winter months. It’s essential that we do the same for our dogs. If you let your pet walk or hike with you on snowy trails in winter, ice balls can form between their paw pads. The hair on his paw gets caught with the snow and form ice that is as hard as rock. It not only makes walking painful, but it’s hard for our pets to walk.

You can help by trimming the hair on your dogs paws and applying some petroleum  jelly just prior to your walk. Be sure to use an edible ointment as dogs frequently lick their paws. Another effective option are boots for pets.  There are many sizes and styles. Make sure that you get a thick boot. This may not work for all pet personalities, but for dogs that will tolerate a boot, this offers the ultimate protection from the elements.

Remember, your pets count!
