Dog Care Tips -Ice, Snow, and Rock Salt

A little late in the season to share this tip- but it’s worth mentioning since we have a few more weeks of winter and who knows what’s going to happen weatherwise! We haven’t had much snow this winter, but a few weekends ago, I had to walk my human in it.

After you walk your human in snow and ice, you need to have him/her check your paws for ice, sand, and rock salt you may have picked up while walking. Sometimes, in this weather, you can get one of those things in your paws, or between the toes, and if you’re not careful, you could develop problems. All you have to do is have your human inspect all four paws, I know I hate this too, kinda personal, but I’d rather he do this than I get sick. And, it should only take a few minutes.

If it makes you feel better, take your humans shoes and soaks off and check between his toes for stuff- this could be gross so be careful!!- you know how humans can be.
