We would love to share some cool tips on caring for your pets during these cold winter months. Whether your pet likes the cold water puddles in Cape Town or the warm winter sun in the upper provinces, the winter can be filled with many adventures. Humans usually buy an extra jacket, warm socks and stock up on vitamins however we don’t realise that a few extra measures may also be required to help your dog or cat stay healthy during the winter months. Here are a few tips that can help you and your pet enjoy the winter wonderland.
The first tip that we think might be useful is to give your pet supplements. Make it part of your morning routine when you drink your Vitamins also give your pets their vitamins to provide them with essential nutrients that can help protect your pet inside and out. There are specific vitamins you can buy for your pets to ensure that it is safe for them to take.
The second tip you should take note of is winter fashion for your pets. Dress up your pets with a Dogs Life to help keep them warm during the night. This is especially important when your specific breed are unable to grow a long thick coat to help keep them warm.
The third tip comes in handy for both pets and humans. Yes, we understand that pets love an open outdoor space where they can do their daily sprints but, it is important to bring your pets indoors when the temperatures start to drop. By keeping them inside during the cold winter nights you provide them safety from freezing temperatures and diseases.
The last tip is easy to remember because it happens to most humans. Take care of your pet’s skin in the winter because they can also get dry skin. Certain gels and creams can help keep your pet’s paws, nose and ears moisturized and prevent painful cracking.
These are just a few quick tips to help you keep your pets warm, safe and happy during the winter months. But most of all we hope you enjoy the big winter cuddles with your furry friend in front of a fireplace
