2. Protect Their Paws

Dog's paw pads are a sensitive area, and it's especially vulnerable during winter. One of the biggest dangers to pet paws is the salt used to melt ice; this can irritate their paws and sometimes cause burns. Dogs left in the cold for long periods of times are also at risk for frostbite on paws. Therefore it is crucial to either cover up their paws with booties, or take special care for paw protection by applying one of these products before going out of the house.
