Baby it's cold outside and if your going to be taking our best buddy out for a walk don't forget to check those paws when you get back.
The Ice and snow can be harsh on dogs paws. It can build up between the pads and cause problems. There is also the salt people dump on their sidewalks to melt the ice. It's great for preventing slips and falls but isn't so nice on tender pads.
You have two choices:
1. Get some doggy foot covers they are available for all size dogs and will protect their feet from the elements.
2. Carefully clean your dogs paws after your walk making sure to get in between the pads where ice can build up.
Remember your dog can't tell you something is wrong and will keep going as long as his buddy wants. Its up to you to keep an eye out for trouble.
