Keeping Your Dog Groomed in the Cold!
When it comes to your furry friend, you want what’s best for them. This is especially true when the weather gets cold. Keeping them properly groomed is not always easy. We have provided some excellent ways to keep them happy and active during the cold.
Brush more frequently
During the cold, dogs tend to shed hair more frequently. This is because we keep our homes warmer in the winter and it causes them to shed more. Too much shedding can lead to mats in some dogs. Brushing them more often can also prevent tangles. Taking time to brush your dog’s hair regularly will also help distribute the natural oils in their fur.
Take care of their paws
The winter time can be awful for your dog’s paws. The snow, ice, and salt can really damage their tender paws. Make sure to clean off their paws after they have been outside in the cold. Watch out for snow and salt that can build up between the pads of your dog’s paws. If you are really concerned about their paws, try using baby socks to cover up their paws when taking them outside. This will help protect against some of the elements.
Don’t skimp on baths
Wrong! Bath time is very important, especially when it’s cold out. Dog’s skin can get dry just like ours due to the cold and the way we heat our houses. Make sure to use some non-drying and extra moisturizing shampoo. This will help with irritation and dryness in winter.

Many types of pets are at risk of having oral problems related to poor dental hygiene. In fact, dental disease in pets is one of the most common medical conditions seen by veterinarians. Over 80 percent of dogs have significant dental problems including loose teeth, sore or infected gums, and rotting tooth sockets. Because of these facts, it is important to know the signs of a dental problem with your pet and take preventative measures to improve dental hygiene.
There are many signs of a dental hygiene problem in pets. Spotting the warning signs early is important so you can help treat the problem. These warning signs include persistent bad breath, noticeable gum issues, loose teeth, missing teeth, pus around the tooth, yellow deposits on teeth, sensitivity around the mouth, pawing at face, or obvious discomfort when chewing. Some examples of gum issues include receding gum lines, gums that bleed easily, and red or swollen gums.
There are many solutions available for improving pet dental hygiene. The most effective way to maintain your pet’s oral health is brushing their teeth. Brushing teeth with a toothpaste made for pets is the best way to remove plaque and prevent tartar on teeth. Another option is to use an oral rinse or gel. To use a rinse, squirt a small amount on each side of your pet’s mouth on the inside of the cheeks. Finally, employing a dental diet or providing rawhide chew treats for your pet will help remove tartar from teeth.
Please consult with your pet’s veterinarian to help you come up with a preventative care dental regimen for your cat, dog, or other pets. For more information on dental hygiene for pets, please contact Huckleberry’s Pet Parlor at (815) 899-3435 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
