When you go outside, you bundle up. And the rule is, if it's too cold for you without some sort of covering, it's too cold for your furry friends.
The Humane Society recommends dogs with short or thin hair need some sort of coat when you walk them. And while summer shaves are in during summer, don't do that during winter.
Just like your skin, your pet's skin gets dry. You can add a skin and coat supplement to their food. And if you find your pet's paws, ears or tail are dry or cracking, you can also apply coconut oil.
Winter salt on sidewalks and driveways can burn your dog's pads and is toxic. After walks, rinse or wipe your dog's paws to remove any salt – you don't want him licking it off.
