As the temperatures begin to drop and the snow begins to fall its time to start thinking about keeping your furry family members sensitive paws healthy; ensuring they can enjoy these chilly months.

Hey there, I’m Annabel a pet Expert at Bentley’s Pet stuff. As the temperatures begin to drop and the snow begins to fall its time to start thinking about keeping your furry family members sensitive paws healthy; ensuring they can enjoy these chilly months.

One thing we often recommend here at Bentleys is investing in some cool kicks for your furry family member. These boots may be a challenge at first for them to walk in but begin by having them wear the for short periods inside and be sure to give them plenty of treats as rewards as they begin to get comfortable in them.

There are tons of options when it comes to boots and socks for dogs but here are some or our favorites. Boots like these not only protect your dogs sensitive paws from harsh salt, ice chunk build ups and the cold but also anything else that may be hiding under that fluffy white stuff.

Another option for prepping your dogs paws for winter is by applying an all natural balm or wax to their paws. First be sure the balm or wax is an all natural wax that if your pet licks their paws is safe, much like these. You also want to make sure that your pets paw hair has been slightly trimmed back as not to clump when wax or balm is applied. Apply a small layer of balm or oil to their paw pads before going on a chilly winter walk. When returning from the walk be sure to wipe down your furry friends paws to clear them from any salt or chemicals they may have come in contact with. Then apply another thin layer to keep the pads healthy and moist.

The last thing we recommend is if you use ice to melt your driveway and sidewalk at home consider using a non-toxic pet friendly salt to minimize your pets contact with any harsh salt or chemicals. By routinely checking your furry family members paws and using these protective precautions in the winter months you can ensure the health of their paws, so they can enjoy the snowy weather more than we do!
