The crisp winter winds that blow through India, particularly in the North, where the body-achingly low temperatures and biting winds occur, can pose a serious health risk to our pets.

Pet owners must take extra measures to ensure the well-being of their furry companions, and it’s essential for parents to implement winter care tips to keep fur friends safe and warm.

But, first…let's talk about some serious risks of winter health issues for our fuzzy ball.

Hypothermia: Pets are prone to hypothermia in cold weather, just like humans are. This occurs when their body temperature drops below normal. Small or short-haired breeds, older pets, and those with certain health conditions are particularly vulnerable. Weakness, tiredness, and shivering are some of the common symptoms of hypothermia.

Frostbite: In severely cold temperatures, frostbite can occur on exposed skin and limbs. Frostbite is common in canines with thin fur or hairless breeds, such as Sphynx or Chinese Crested cats. The most vulnerable parts are the ears, paws, and tail. Pale or discolored skin, coldness to the touch, and pain, when touched, are among the warning signs.

It's critical to take proactive measures to address these dangers in order to keep your beloved companion safe and healthy during the winter. Here, exploring some easy tips to take care of your favourite fur baby in the winter.

Provide adequate shelter: Ensure that your toby has a warm and dry spot to retreat to, especially on cooler evenings. Whether it's a warm bed indoors or a well-insulated outside shelter, having their own space will protect them from the cold and freezing temperatures.

Bundle with Pet Apparel: Animals, just like humans, might benefit from a little extra insulation during the winter. To keep your fuzzy friends warm when they must go for walks outside, get sweaters or jackets that are suitable for pets. Smaller breeds and those with shorter furs should pay special attention to this.

Mindful Grooming: Regular pet grooming is essential, even if it may be tempting to let your scooby fur grow longer over the winter. Removing extra fur from their body allows their coat to act as effective insulation while also preventing matting and maintaining cleanliness. For a perfect grooming experience, Bathright Express Waterless Wash is the paw-fect choice during the winter. It doesn't require water and takes a great deal of time and effort.

Take care of those delicate paws: Icy sidewalks and roads can be rough on your pet's sensitive paws. To shield their feet from harsh weather and allergy-causing substances like rock salt, think about using pet-friendly boots. Make sure to wipe your pet's paws from Bathright Pet wipes after walks to get rid of any ice, snow, or de-icing agents. Massage their paws with Bathright Paw Butter to keep those tiny pad smooth and nourished.

Keep them active with indoor play. Cold weather doesn’t mean you fuzz ball should miss out on physical activity. To keep their bodies and brains active without exposing them to the chilling cold, engage them in indoor games, interactive toys like Gearbuff Chew Toys 5-in-1, and mental stimulation activities. This will help them stay warm and active during these cold days.

Keep them hydrated: Although it might not be as apparent, pets can get dehydrated in the winter. Animals experience dehydration throughout the winter, much like we do. Make sure they have access to fresh water at all times. Avoid using metal bowls outside, as your pet's tongue could stick to the cold surface.

Feed them a Nutritious Diet: Throughout the winter, tweak your pet's nutrition according to their activity level and metabolism. Providing wholesome, well-balanced food supports their immune system and helps them maintain optimum health. With calcium, protein, omega 3, vitamins A, D, and B12, and magnesium, Nutribles Himalayan Dog Chew sticks are incredibly nutrient-rich. They are suitable for all dogs and puppies older than four months.

Regular vet check-ups: To address any health issues or make any necessary adaptations for the colder months, schedule a winter check-up with your veterinarian. Talk about the right nutrition, vitamins, and any unique needs based on the breed and age of your furry member of the house.

Remember, a little additional attention goes a long way toward giving the warmth and comfort your pets require throughout the winter months. Stay aware, and warm, and enjoy the winter with your happy and healthy pooch.
