Pet Groom­ing

Modern Dog - - BODY & SOUL -

Wipe your dog’s paws—both the un­der­side and be­tween the pads—af­ter they’ve been out­side. This is im­por­tant be­cause salt and chem­i­cal ice melters can ir­ri­tate and burn your dog’s paws. Th­ese sub­stances can also be fa­tal if in­gested! But don’t think paw clean­ing means more baths. Too much bathing, es­pe­cially dur­ing the dry, cold win­ter sea­son, can dry out your dog’s skin and cre­ate ir­ri­ta­tion and itch­i­ness.
