Are Your Pets Ready for Winter?

1/6/2022 (Permalink)

We all love the snow, most of us anyway. Going on a wintry wonderland walk is always peaceful and can help clear your mind, especially with your pet by your side. Here at SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian, we love our pets as much as we love getting emergency calls. These winter weather walks can be hazardous for your pet so here is some advice from our franchise:  

Exposure to winter’s cold, dry air and chilly precipitation can cause chapped paws and itchy, flaking skin for your pet. In addition to this, winter walks can become outright dangerous if your pet licks chemicals from ice-melting substances off its paws.  

  • Keep your home humidified and dry your pets when they come inside to avoid itchy skin. 
  • Never shave your dog in the winter. Instead, go for a short trim until the weather warms up. 
  • Bathe your pets as little as possible during freezing weather. 
  • Applying petroleum jelly or using booties could help protect your pet’s paws.  
  • Feed your pet a little extra during the winter. This additional scoop of food provides extra calories.  
  • Remember, if it is too cold for you, it is too cold for your pet.  

We hope you enjoyed these cold weather safety tips for your pets! Stay warm this winter!
