Protect your dog’s paws from road salt

protect_dog_paws_from_road_salt_lifetimewithdogsOne of the biggest risks to healthy paw pads is the salt (deicer) used to melt ice on streets, sidewalks and driveways. Salt can cause your dog to get chemical burns on their paw pads which can result in a lot of irritation.

The signs of a dog having salt irritation on the paw pads are stopping in their tracks on a walk, starting to limp or chewing at their paws. It can be dangerous for your dog to chew at his paws because many deicers are toxic to dogs and can make them ill.

To help your dogs avoid getting chemical burns or becoming sick from ingesting salt, it is important to stay off of heavily salted sidewalks and roads. If you want to use salt on your driveway or sidewalk, there are dog-safe deicers that will not harm your dog. One way to keep your dog’s paw pads healthy is to have them wear dog boots. Many dogs take time to get used to wearing boots but once they do it can be a paw saver. Also, if you come back from a walk on a salted sidewalk it is a good idea to wipe down your dog’s paws with warm water.

Salt can be a danger to your dog, but if you take the right steps to keep your dog’s paws healthy they can still enjoy exercise during the winter.

A blind dog gets his own guide dog

lucky_scruffy_border_terriers_lifetime_with_dogsLucky, a two year old border terrier was born without retinas. But Scruffy, his three year old  father is always right there in case his blind son needs some comforting. If Lucky knocks into something his father is right there to help him out of any sticky situation he may be in.

Jim Leonard, the grandfather of Chelsea who owns Lucky often looks after him. When he does, he wears bells on his pants so Lucky can always find him. Also, to keep lucky out of dangerous areas of the home he puts strong smells like lemon juice.

He said: ‘He lives life to the full. He has a great sense of smell, he can smell things from so far away, he must be compensating for having no eyes. He loves getting petted and made attention of.”
