Apart from cleaning and grooming your pet, you need to use an ice melt that is paw-safe. Follow these simple guidelines to ensure that your pets stay safe throughout the next cold winter months. 

Protect From The Harsh Cold

Except for moments of activity, keep pets inside. It will keep them safe from the weather during the winter. For outside activities, consider putting your pet in a sweater or coat.

Safe And Warm Shelter

Even though we encourage that all animals stay indoors throughout the winter, if your pet needs to be outside, make sure they have a well-equipped shelter. You’ll need a place that’s dry and big enough for them to turn around, sit, and lie down comfortably. You can use dry straw in shelters as it allows air to circulate, keeps your pet dry, and provides warmth and comfort. 

Keep Them Clean And Groomed

Salt crystals, snowballs, and even deicing chemicals stick to the fur of animals with longer coats, causing your pet’s skin to dry out. Remember to cut the hair between their paws as well. Brushing your pet regularly will help to boost blood circulation and will enhance their general skin condition. Washing your pets’ skin too frequently can destroy the vital oils that make their skin healthy. Your veterinarian can suggest a moisturizing shampoo or rinse for your poodle.

Extra Care And Protection

Warm engines in parked cars attract cats and tiny creatures, which may seek warmth beneath the hood. Before starting your engine, beat on the hood of your car to scare away any animals.

In snowy or blizzardy circumstances, pets are more likely to become lost and bewildered. Make sure your dog or cat’s identifying tag and microchip information are current and accurate.

Keep Your Pets Well-Fed

During the winter, make sure to give your pets a little more food and lots of water. It will assist them in producing the energy they require to stay warm, will keep them hydrated, thus helping in the moisturization of their skin. Check your pet’s water dish regularly to ensure the water is fresh and not frozen. 


During the winter, treat your dog’s feet like you would your own. Your dog is in the same boat as you. Keep an eye out for any indicators of discomfort or concern in your dog’s behavior.
