Winter is here, and as the temperatures drop, it's essential to make sure our friends are equipped and protected from the freezing cold, ice, and road salt. In this blog post, we'll discuss how to keep our pets safe and warm during the harsh winter months. Let's explore some tips and tricks for bundling up, protecting paws, and ensuring our pets are identifiable and traceable.
One of the easiest ways to keep your pet warm in the cold weather is by bundling them up in a cozy coat or sweater. Ashario Pets Store offers a wide variety of wellness-focused, high-quality pet clothing items that are both stylish and functional. Their extended operating hours (9:00 AM to 11:00 PM) and convenient location at 1111A Finch Avenue West Unit #2 North York, Ontario M3J 2P7 makes it easy for you to find the perfect garment for your furry companion.
Deicers, such as road salt, can be harsh on your pet's paws, causing irritation and even burns. Use pet-safe deicers or invest in pet booties for your friend to protect their paws from the elements while on their daily walks. Ashario Pets Store provides an extensive range of paw-protecting products, such as booties, waterproof socks, or paw balm, at low and reasonable prices.
Snow and ice can make it easier for pets to get lost, so it's essential to ensure your pet is easily identifiable and traceable. Ashario Pets Store offers high-quality ID tags, trackers, and GPS devices for a variety of pet sizes and breeds, making it easier for you to track your pet's whereabouts and ensure their safe return.
Cold weather can make it dangerous for pets to be outside for extended periods. Plan ahead by shortening your walk times or splitting them into multiple, shorter walks throughout the day. Make sure to keep an eye on the weather to avoid walking your pet during extreme cold or icy conditions.
Remember that winter hazards aren't just limited to the outdoors; keeping your home safe for your pets during the winter is also crucial. Be mindful of drafts near pet beds, keep indoor temperatures cozy, and store any dangerous winter chemicals, such as antifreeze, away from your pets.
