Give extra care to your pets in the winter season. Don’t overfeed your dog and keep them away from electric heaters, suggest experts.
Share tips on winter care for pets:
Make a comfortable warm bed for the pet. Keep them warm with jackets, sweatshirts and coats. But make them wear it only at evening till morning when it’s cold.
You can also use dog perfumes and deodorants if they get smelly. Make sure to remove the dog clothing daily and nicely brush the hair to keep the fur from matting.
Keep them away from electric heaters and blowers. Do not let them sit next to it. Virgin, organic and cold pressed coconut oil hydrates the skin and coat. A massage with it not only relaxes your pet but also leaves your pet’s coat with a lovely glossy finish
Do not overfeed the dog. Make sure to give the dog warm food and avoid food like curd and rice at night. Do not give them cold water to drink.
After giving your pet a bath, be careful to use conditioner to leave the coat protected. Honey is a superfood that strengthens your pet’s overall immunity by fighting infections and digestive problems. It has plenty of antioxidants and does wonders for sore throats and coughs.
Fish-based diet is ideal for this weather. They contain plenty of omega fatty acids that improve the health of your pet’s coat and skin.
Hydration is always important, but the cold weather discourages your pet from drinking their usual quota of water. Make up for it by including soups and broths in their diets.
