Ever seen those funny videos of dogs wearing shoes?They're good for more than just Facebook videos. They will provideprotection against the cold and salt thatcould irritate the pads on your dog's feet. 2) Warm pawbath!

To ensure that your doggy's (or kitty's) contactwith the ice and salt combo doesn't irritate the pads on their paws, rinse their paws after a walk or when theycome in from a potty break.Having a bowl of waterand a towelnear the door is a quick way to rinseand dry paws right when your furry fam comes back inside.
