Paw Tips for Cold Days

Paw Tips for Cold Days

In very cold weather, the pads on the bottom of your cat's feet can take a beating. They may appear dry and slightly cracked. If you notice this, or, better yet, before it becomes a problem, here are some measures you can take:

  • After each walk or trip outdoors, wash off your pet's feet. This will get any ice off them and washes off any road salt that could be causing the dryness.
  • Trim the hair between your pet's toes; it often collects ice and snow.
  • And, of course, always consult your veterinarian with any questions or concerns.
