Posted by wadmin on Tuesday, January 10, 2017


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.
