Protecting Dog’s Paws in the Snow!

Here is some top information for keeping your dog’s paws protected in the snow:

 

“Winter can be brutal on our dog’s paw pads. Exposed to the elements and toxic chemicals, the paw pads are at risk for drying, cracking, trauma, frostbite and chemical burns. Luckily, there are some tips and products out there that can help keep your dog’s paws happy and healthy this winter.

Many protective balms are available to help protect your dog’s paws, and even some human products can do the trick. Do your research. Once you find the balm that you like, take these steps:

Before using the balm, make sure the paw is ready. Good grooming is essential for healthy winter feet. If your dog has long hair use a clipper (beard trimmer with the shortest plastic guard equipped works well) to keep the hair between the paw pads short so that it is even with the pad. Trim the hair around the paws especially if they have a lot of feathering to make sure none of the hair comes into contact with the ground. This will help prevent ice balls from forming between and around the paw pads which can be painful and result in trauma. It also makes it easier to apply the balm to the pads. Keeping the nails trimmed is important year-round but even more so in the winter because long nails force the paw to splay out and make it more likely that snow and ice will accumulate between the paw pads.

Apply a thin even layer of balm just before going out for a wintery walk. After the walk wipe your dog’s paws with a warm washcloth to remove snow, ice and ice melt. Then apply another layer of balm to soothe any irritation and to keep them from drying out. Bag Balm can be found in most drug stores and pet stores. If you can’t find Bag Balm then Vaseline is an acceptable alternative.

Another good option to protect your dog’s paws is dog boots. These boots are made by various manufacturers and can be easily found online and in pet stores. They consist of a sock like boot with a Velcro strap to help keep them in place. Some have soles which provide the additional benefit of adding traction. These boots protect the paw by helping them stay dry and preventing exposure to salt and de-icers. Be sure to check that the strap is not too tight; the boot should be snug so that it doesn’t slip off but not so tight that it constricts the paw. Dogs tend to not to like wearing the boots at first so acclimate them to wearing them by putting them on your dog for short periods of time in the house. Praise them and gradually increasing the length of time as they get used to them.

Be aware that salt and most de-icers can be toxic to our canine friends. Try to keep your dog away from roads and sidewalks that have been heavily treated with salt and chemical de-icers. There are pet friendly de-icers available for use on your own sidewalks and driveway and you should encourage your neighbors to do the same. Immediately after a walk, wash your dog’s paws with warm water as described earlier to help prevent them from ingesting any salt or chemicals that may be on their paws. While outdoors, do not let your dog eat slush or drink from puddles near heavily treated roads and sidewalks.

Dogs are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia just as people are so use common sense as to how long your walks can be. Keep them short and watch for signs of hypothermia such as shivering, anxiety  and moving slowly.

Winter can be tough on our dog’s feet but good grooming and protecting the paws by using a balm or booties will go a long way to keeping your dog’s feet healthy.”

About Marple and Marple Bridge

We visit Marple a lot and Marple Bridge at Aussie Dog Care when going to Brabyns Park , Middlewood way, Canal or the pet shop! So we would like to share with you some lovely information about Marple and its districts from a wonderful site!

“The District of Marple is situated in the South East corner of Greater Manchester in the United Kingdom. It adjoins the Cheshire/Derbyshire boundary and includes the “villages” of Marple, Mellor, Hawk Green, High Lane, Marple Bridge, Moor End, Strines and the hamlet of Mill Brow. The District covers just over 11 square miles of attractive countryside, ranging from heavily wooded valleys to hill-top moorland. It rises from around 300ft above sea level at the lowest point on the River Goyt to just over 1000ft at Cobden Edge. On a clear day it is possible to view the four counties of Cheshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire and Yorkshire from the top of these hills. The Peak District countryside surrounding Marple offers many pleasant walks and rambles, there being 66 mile of public footpaths in the Urban District alone.

Postwar residential development in the District has resulted in an increase in the population from 12,880 in 1950 to approximately 27,000 in the early 1990’s. This growth and the resulting increase in demand has brought improved shopping facilities, including the pedestrianisation of Market Street and Derby Way and the development on the former Hollins Mill site has made Marple into an attractive little “town” without losing too much of its “village” identity.

The Marple Library, located in the Memorial Park, occupies two floors and adds to the many benefits available to residents and visitors alike. In addition to having approximately 40,000 books available, it has Exhibition and Meeting Room facilities, Study Room and Reference Sections, including Local History.

Approximately 5,000 of Marple’s 7,000 acres are included in the Greater Manchester Green Belt. The District is served by two railway stations, Marple and Rose Hill, which give the visitor and resident ease of access to most parts of the North West. The District also has a good bus transport service, provided by Greater Manchester Transport. The former rail link between Macclesfield, Bollington and Marple, closed in 1970 , is now converted to an attractive footpath and bridleway know as The Middlewood Way.

The River Goyt flows though the District from south to north, meeting its tributary the River Etherow at a point near Compstall, appropriately named “Water Meetings”. It then flows down through Marple Dale and on towards Stockport where it becomes the River Mersey at its confluence with the river Tame under the M60 at Portwood. Manchester Canoe Club, founded in 1933, have their own site on the River Goyt in Marple and regularly hold slalom competitions and river races there. For more details, visit the Manchester Canoe Club site.

The Peak Forest Canal meets the Macclesfield Canal in Marple and with a flight of 16 locks, the second steepest in the country, and a 300ft wide aqueduct provide the main attraction and define the character of the town. Follow this link for more details of the Rivers and Canals.” Taken from http://www.marple-uk.com/Marple.htm

About Marple Bridge , quoted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marple_Bridge

“Marple Bridge is a village within the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport, in Greater Manchester, England. It lies on the River Goyt, which runs through the centre of the village, and is close to the town of Marple.

Historically a part of the civil parish of Glossop, in Derbyshire, it was included in the new parish of Ludworth and Chisworth in 1866.[1] Ludworth became a separate parish in 1896, and was abolished in 1936, when the former parish was transferred to Cheshire and amalgamated into Marple Urban District.[2] In 1974 the urban district was abolished and Marple Bridge became part of the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in the county of Greater Manchester. It shares borders with Mellor, Marple, Compstall, New Mills, Strines, Mill Brow and Chisworth. It is located in the ecclesiastical parish of Mellor and the parish church of St Thomas, Mellor stands several hundred feet higher than the village, overlooking Marple Bridge, Marple, Greater Manchester and Cheshire.”

At Aussie Dog Care we love marple bridge also as it is easy to get to from Romiley via the canal and their are lots of cafes like Dutsons and Libbys Bread and Wine , an interior shop , antiques , bookshop , clothes shops even a post office! The walks around this area are great for dogs and all are beautiful.
