Winter is a special time of the year. But it's also a time of the year when weather conditions can get harsh. Add to that the need to run heating on a regular basis, and you may notice your skin or hair getting dry. As a pet parent, it's important to remember that these same issues affect dogs and cats.
If you've already noticed dryness or winter dandruff with your pet or just want to get ahead of any potential problems, we've got several ways that you can help your pet all season long:
Stay on Top of Grooming
Consistent grooming is one of the best things you can do for your pet's coat during the winter. When you brush your pet, any dead hair, dirt, or tangles will get removed. Not only will this help your pet looks its best, but brushing also helps with skin circulation. As far as baths go, you don't necessarily need to do this any more often than you would during other seasons. If you do give your pet a bath, make sure it has plenty of time to fully dry before going outside.
Use a Skin Spray
Even with consistent grooming, many pets still experience skin and coat issues during the winter. A great way to help with this is to use Pet Wants Skin Spray. This spray will help keep your dog’s skin from drying out. It can also help your dog with other common conditions like hot spots, bites, burns, and irritations. When you choose our Skin Spray, you can feel great knowing it's made from natural ingredients like avocado oil, lavender oil, and cedarwood oil.
Take Care of Your Pet's Feet
Your pet's feet can be especially susceptible to the harsher winter conditions. When you take your dog outside for a walk, pay attention to the temperature and what's on the ground. If you're worried about what your dog's paws may encounter, Pet Wants Paw Wax is a helpful option. Our homemade Paw Wax contains natural ingredients like shea butter and organic coconut oil. Applying it will help create a protective barrier on your pet's feet.
Feed Your Pet Well
What your pet eats on a daily basis has a big impact on its skin and coat health. A pet that's not getting the right nutrients from its diet will have a dull and flaky coat. Choosing a quality food like Pet Wants which is nutrient packed with essential ingredients like fish oil is one of the best things you can do to help support your pet’s skin and coat health.
By staying on top of grooming, using a skin spray, taking care of your pet's feet and feeding your pet well, you'll be able to ensure that your pet looks and feels great all winter long!
