Bow Oww! Winter Worries and Pet Safety
Winter🌨 walks are a great way to keep you and your pet🐶 active! While the snow❄️ and frost🧊 may be fun⛄️, it is important to play it safe during this chilly🥶 season! From cold🌡 weather to toxic🤢 road salt, there are many things that can make winter a pain🤕 for you and your furry friend. Here are three things to look out👀 for to help keep your pet safe🦺 this winter.
Road Salt - Hard on the ice and your pet's skin! Conventional ice melt has jagged edges that can injure your pet's paws, dry out their skin causing it to crack, and is toxic when ingested! Worst of all, it's everywhere in the wintertime! Keep your furry friends away from heavily salted areas, bring a towel to wipe off their paws and underside after a walk, and if they don't mind, consider pet booties. Be Green Snow Pro is a pet safe alternative to road salt! Our salt-free chloride-free solution means it is safe for people, pets, your property, and the planet. The small, smooth uniform grains are designed to be easy on pets paws, won't leave a briny mess on your floor, and the taste deterrent helps protect pets just in case they get curious.

Winter Chills - Keep your pet warm this winter! This means only trim long-haired dogs to prevent winter debris such as clumping snow and ice melt on their fur. The longer coat will keep them warmer! Short-haired dogs may need some extra help. Winter wear including dog coats, sweaters will help keep your pets nice and cozy on cold walks.
Health at Home - Your furry friends use extra energy to stay warm in the winter, so feeding you pet a little extra food can help! Additionally, since cold temperatures lower humidity, make sure your pet gets plenty to drink to keep them hydrated. Make sure to bathe you furry friend as little as possible during chilly times since doing so can remove essential oils that help prevent flakey dry skin.
