Winter Paw Care

Winter walks are fun, but the rock salt used to melt snow can make a dog's paws raw and chapped. Learn how to prevent this.
Martha Stewart Living, January 2006

Winter walks are fun, but the rock salt used to melt snow can make a dog's paws raw and chapped. To prevent a pet injury, fill a container with warm water before going outdoors, and briefly dunk each paw in the water when you return home. Keep a towel nearby for drying off.
