Brrr it’s cold out there! After the newest winter storm and all that freezing rain, it is important to keep your pet safe in these colder temperatures. Here are a few tips to make sure you can keep your best friend safe for the rest of this winter.

  • Wipe down your pet. Make sure to wipe down your pet’s belly, legs, and paws. Paws caked with snow, salt, and ice-melting chemicals can irritate and even harm your pet if licked or swallowed. If possible, apply petroleum jelly or another paw protectant to your pet’s paws before venturing out for a winter walk.
