Keeping Your Pet Safe this Winter

This winter has been BRUTAL! We’ve had heaps of snow and incredibly cold weather thanks to the polar vortex. In (below) freezing times like these, it’s important to remember that Fido and Fluffy will need a little extra attention to make sure they’re safe and warm. So, we’ve bundled together a few winter pet care tips to share:

This winter has been BRUTAL! We’ve had heaps of snow and incredibly cold weather so far this season. In (below) freezing times like these, it’s important to remember that Fido and Fluffy will need a little extra attention to make sure they’re safe and warm. So, we’ve bundled together a few winter pet care tips to share:

  1. To keep snow out of your pet's paws, carefully clip the fur between their toe pads. That way, less snow will collect there when they’re out romping around. Before letting Fido & Fluffy back inside, gently remove any snow and ice from their feet, legs and belly. Also be sure to rinse off any salt, antifreeze or other harmful chemicals from their paws that they could have picked up outside.
  2. After deep snows, remember to shovel a path out so your pets can make it outside to go potty.
  3. Most traditional ice-melting products are toxic. Here at The Pet Beastro, we use Groundworks Icemelter to melt the ice on the sidewalks outside of the store. It’s safe for both your fur and human babies and it works great. We also have it in stock if you’re looking to pick up a bag.
  4. Please don’t leave your pets inside the car during cold winters! Just as temperatures heat up cars during the winter, they hold in the bitter cold during the winter. If you’re going out, just leave your pets at home.
  5. Cold, winter air can dry out your pet’s skin. To improve your pet’s skin during the winter, brush him regularly and consider adding a skin enhancing supplement to his diet.

Hang in there, warm weather will be here before you know it. Until then, stay safe!
