Do THIS After Walking Your Dog

Paw Safe Ice Melt

Walking your dog is a great way to spend time with your pet and get your daily exercise. Unfortunately, it can also be harmful to both you and your dog if you don’t know what to do after walking them.

As the weather cools down and snow begins to fall, it’s crucial that you take the right steps to protect your pet’s paws. This can help prevent injury or pain, which can make them less active and more prone to illness too. The good news is that there are several ways you can go about this, depending on your dog’s specific needs!

Warm Water Wash 

Protecting your dog’s paws at home is also important. After every trip outside, wash your dog’s paws with warm water and liquid soap or dishwashing liquid. Don’t forget to rinse. You want to remove any salt or ice that may have stuck to your dog’s feet during the walk, as these substances can irritate his skin and cause sores.

Dry The Paws

The best way to dry off your dog’s wet paws is with a clean towel. Do not use a towel that has been used on your own feet, as this can transfer fungi and bacteria to their paws. Use the towel to gently dry their paws, then have them shake out any excess water. If they’re still damp after they shake, wipe them with another paper towel before letting them back inside.

Keep Them Indoors

If you have a short-haired dog, it’s important to keep them inside during the winter months. Short-haired dogs are more susceptible to cold temperatures than long-haired dogs and may develop frostbite if they spend too much time outside in freezing conditions.

Use Paw Wax

If you know your dog will be walking on hot pavement, consider using a pet-friendly paw wax or paw balm before the walk. These products help prevent hot pavement burns by creating a protective barrier between the pads and the ground. 

 Keep in mind that if it’s too cold for you, it’s likely too cold for your dog as well

Use A Pawsafe Ice Melt 

Safe Paw is one of the only pawsafe ice melts available in the market. It is safe for concrete, pets, children, brick, and stone. Use the Safe Paw ice melter, which is guaranteed to be environmentally friendly because it is salt and chloride free, non-corrosive to all metals, and non-conductive.
