Jacket vs. No Jacket?
An age-old debate among pet owners is whether a dog requires a jacket. In general, young dogs, short-haired dogs, senior dogs, and animals with compromised immune systems can benefit from an extra layer of warmth when the temperatures are below freezing. There are many different types of jackets available, ranging from light barn coats to full-body parkas, and one can be found for any size, breed, or weather condition.
Purchase Pet-Safe Driveway Salt
If you live in an area that is prone to ice, purchasing pet-safe salt is important. Regular de-icing salt can become trapped in paws, not only causing pain but also posing a risk to animals that lick their feet. Pet-safe salt can be purchased at most pet stores and hardware stores and is non-toxic and paw friendly.
