Tip of the Week

You may have heard that it`s a good idea to wash your automobile as frequently as possible in the winter to prevent corrosion from road salt. If road salt can corrode the metal under your car, just think of the damage it can do to your dog`s feet! The salt spread on sidewalks and roads can soak into your dogs foot pads, causing drying, irritation and in some cases painful cracks and sores. After winter strolls in areas where salt may be used, rinse your dog`s feet in the tub or wipe thoroughly with a wet cloth. You`ll both be glad you did!
