Cold Weather and Paws


Cold Weather and Paws

Hi, I'm Dr. Jeff Poulsen with Central Texas Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital.

Your four legged friends feet play an important role in their daily life. Here's some ways to protect their paw pads as the temperature outside drops. Cold weather can lead to cracked paw pads or bleeding. Check their pulse frequently for injuries or damage. Booties and balms can help paw pads from ice, salts, and other harmful chemicals like antifreeze. Even with booties, you should always be sure to wipe your dog's feet thoroughly with a clean, dry towel before coming back inside.

When serious illnesses do happen, CTVSEH is there for you. Their specialists and doctors offer a range of in depth surgical procedures, testing equipment and diagnostic capabilities.
