Paw Pet Care:
Have you ever walked around barefoot only to realize when you got home how dirty your feet were and more importantly how they were affected by chemicals and the temperature, especially if you were walking in extreme heat? Well, you’re not alone.
If you think about your pooch’s paws, it’s a bit overwhelming. As it relates to paw pet care, there are hazards to be aware of. In particular, whether there’s glass or debris it can insure your dog’s paw. In rural terrain, for instance if you’re hiking with your dog, a rocky area may have jagged rocks which can harm your dog’s paws. In addition, in the bolstering summer heat, pavement and surfaces can be extremely hot and damage your dog’s paws. One remedy? When walking your dog, be sure to walk on a cooler surface. And in the winter, ice and road salt can also harm your dog’s paws. The rock salt and ice melt could be a serious problem; when pits lick their paws they get ill so after taking walks, remove ice balls between the toes and wipe feet with a damp towel.
Another way to foster proper paw pet care, is to help your dog build up general endurance. Just as you wouldn’t run a marathon without training properly, if you’re an active runner or hiker with your dog, your dog’s paws may easily become chaffed or cracked. He’ll need to adjust and build up general endurance.
Let’s not forget the claws! They can also be an issue. Keeping claws trimmed is a safety benefit for proper paw care. Catching a nail on something could be painful! Plus, long nails could result in difficulty walking on wooden floors and tiles, as well as older pets face the problem of falling.
Another solution for proactive paw pet care is to get paw wax. Not only does it aid your dog’s grip on slippery surfaces, it helps paws year-round from gravel, unsmooth surfaces, ice, snow, and hard surfaces. After use, for proper paw pet care, be sure to wash with soap and water.
