With the winter months comes wet weather, frosty winds, icy roads and sleet filled paths. All of these conditions can make things a little bit tougher for your precious pooch, so it’s important to take extra steps to make sure your dog stays safe and well throughout the season.
Similarly to us humans, dogs need extra support in winter to keep them healthy and happy during this chilly time of year. That’s why Vitabiotics SuperDog is the perfect treat to give them a boost this season.
SuperDog provides your pooch with essential vitamins and minerals relevant to dogs, to promote overall health and vitality in your four-legged friend. Combined with our helpful winter pet safety tips, your dog will be well-prepped for the winter months ahead!
Wrap your dog up on walks
During the colder months, your dog will still need to stay active and go on regular walks. When you go out, make sure your dog is warm enough by wrapping them up in a dog coat.
This is especially important if you have a dog with a fine coat such as a greyhound, as they can feel the cold more than dogs with thicker fur.
Protect your pooch’s paws
Dogs’ legs and paws are one of the areas that are more susceptible to frostbite, so it’s important to keep them warm and protected from the icy outdoor surfaces.
A pair of dog booties will not only keep your dog’s feet warm in winter, they will also protect your dog from harmful chemicals such as de-icer and road salt.
If your dog has tread in salt, or they refuse to wear their boots, be sure to clean and dry their feet after your walk.
Keep your dog moisturised
Just like us, the winter weather can dry out your pet’s skin. During the winter seasons, it’s important to try and give your pet fewer washes than normal as this can dry their skin out further.
Should you bathe your dog, be sure to use a moisturising shampoo and rinse to protect their skin. As well as this, treat your dog to SuperDog vitamins!
SuperDog contains omega-3 fatty acids, which can help towards keeping your dog’s coat sleek and shiny, and keep their skin healthy.
Be careful not to overfeed
You may think feeding your dog a little more during winter will help to protect them from the cold, however, you could be doing more harm than good.
If your dog is less active, it’s important to adjust their calorie intake accordingly. As well as this, ensure you feed your dog with high-quality pet food to keep them energised and healthy throughout the colder months.
