Tips From Your Malvern Veterinarian - Keeping Chester County Animals Cozy During Chilly Weather

Feb 10, 2016

FB_18.jpgRemember: If it’s too cold for you to be outside without a coat, it’s probably too cold for your pet. Even though most dogs and cats have natural fur coats, they still have trouble coping with winter weather. Affinity Veterinary Center of Malvern can help prepare you and your pet for frigid temperatures.


Keeping your pet inside is the best way to ensure that they are warm, safe, and cozy. However, if your pet needs to go outside, make sure they are equipped with cold-weather comfort. Winter gear for your pet should always include a coat or sweater that fits comfortably with your leash.


In addition to temperature, some man-made factors may pose a danger to your pet. Chemicals or salt used to melt snow and ice can irritate and permanently damage your pet’s paws. Rubbing petroleum jelly into sensitive paws or using protective booties can help keep your pet free of chemical-related inflammation. If you’re worried about picking the correct winter weather clothes for your pet, Affinity can help you choose the most appropriate protective gear.


If you have any questions or worries about caring for your pet during the winter, make an appointment to visit Affinity or call us at 610-644-6405.
