Winter Pet Care Tips

  • Winter Apparel – Invest in pet-friendly winter gear like coats or sweaters to help your pets stay cozy and retain body heat during chilly walks.
  • Paw Protection – Use pet-friendly booties to shield your pet’s paws from freezing surfaces and harmful de-icing chemicals that can irritate their skin.
  • Hydration – Ensure your pets have access to fresh, unfrozen water at all times to prevent dehydration, as winter air can be dry and contribute to increased water consumption.
  • Limit Outdoor Exposure – During extreme cold, limit your pet’s outdoor exposure, especially for breeds sensitive to low temperatures, and opt for shorter, more frequent walks or indoor exercises.
