Winter Fitness Is Important

Despite the colder temperatures, it is still important to make sure your dog is getting plenty of exercise. Here are a few tips to keep your pet healthy in the winter months.

  • Bring outdoor games indoors. Playing fetch, rolling a ball around and practicing obedience exercises are great ways to get your pooch’s blood pumping.
  • Introduce new toys. Your dog may grow tired of their old playthings. A new toy can deliver an exciting challenge.
  • Clean their paws. Snow, ice and salt can irritate your dog’s paws and pads. Be sure to wipe them clean after a wintertime walk or play session.
  • Reduce calorie intake. The reduction in exercise this time of year makes weight gain a potential problem. Talk to your veterinarian about whether a change in diet is necessary for your pet.
