Pet Care During Winter

Winter care of your pet

The Winter season is marked as a festive season but in the case of tame animals winter requires good care of the pet, in the season health problems for pets increase, like cold and other viruses which become common. Pet Owners have to be more responsible during these cold times and should be more mindful about some things throughout these winter months to keep their children safe and sound. Penned below are the points one shall always be mindful of:-

Clothing of the pet

Because of the cold evenings and mornings in the winter months, one cannot change the daily routine of their pet like regular walks which have to happen regularly without any distraction they cannot be skipped anyway, what one can do is cover your pet with thick clothing to avoid any discomfort or disease to the pet.

Clean there toes

Naturally, during the walks their paws catch dirt like stones and sand especially in the case of long-haired dogs. It’s pretty much normal, this dirt needs to be dusted regularly after the tours so that their toe does not pain and they also stay away from any kind of allergies. The best solution to it would be to trim the hairs present in between the paws of your pet.

Warm Bed

Throughout the cold days, they can manage themselves during the day time but at night you must provide them a separate warm and cozy bed on which they can feel comfort and the blanket you provide them should also be comfortable and relaxing for the winter nights, also cover their coats with thick cloths.

Indoor Activities

Try keeping the pets active with indoor games and activities during the day time, so they don’t get lazy in the winter season. Providing them with their favorite toys and playing with their favorite active games, always the owner must have a purpose to play with the pets. It should not be just fun but also a new learning experience for the child. If they are not comfortable going out in the winter months this is the best you can do as a pet parent.

Avoid Unnecessary weight gain

If you have got a non-sporting pet in your home and they are exceptionally lazy during the winters you must avoid overfeeding the pet and focus majorly on their suitable diet plans. Weight gain can make your dog obese and many other health issues may also take place in that case, so prevention is better than cure.

Presence during walks

In any case, if you leave your pet normally alone for walks and tours in the morning it’s strictly advised not to take that risk especially during foggy days where there is low visibility and much higher chances of your pet to mislead and get lost anywhere. Better be responsible enough to be with them in those walks and be up-to-date about there and your recent contacts information. In addition, we advise you to be careful that you never leave your dog alone in the car anytime this can be a very dangerous step because temperatures can drop very quickly in cold weather.

Away from sea areas

Taking your pet on the seaside in winter seasons can be a tricky game as it is impossible to know how secure the area is for the pet and if there is any chance of your pet to try jump into the water let them be away from dangerous water coasts.

Collar Lights

Early mornings and late evenings of the winter season are usually having low visibility and it can be hard for you to find your dog in low light, so better to buy a collar light for your pet which can make this hide & seek easy for pet parents. 

Grooming them nicely
