How to Care for Your Dog's Skin in Winter?

Hello. This is DUZ ( ´●ᗜ●`*)💙


The cold, dry winter is upon us.

There's no time like the present to not pay attention to your dog's health.


So, That's why I've put together this guide on how to care for your dog's skin during the winter to keep him healthy and happy!😍





Dogs are covered in fur, so why do they need skin care?


A dog's skin is about twice as thin as human skin.

While humans have 10 to 15 layers of skin, dogs only have 3 to 5 layers.

This makes them more susceptible to skin diseases, so skin care is essential.





Step1. Dryness is a no-no


Moisturizing is a must.

Just like humans need to stay hydrated in the winter, your dog needs to stay hydrated to avoid dryness.

If your dog is on a dry food diet, water is the only way to rehydrate.

Sometimes you can combine wet and dry food, and it's always a good idea to keep your dog's water bowl filled with fresh water.

You can also keep your dog's skin healthy by controlling the temperature and humidity in the room to keep it from drying out!





Step 2. Make use of moisturizers and mists


Apply moisturizer to the pads of your dog's paws after frequent walks and mist your dog's hairy coat when brushing them.

It's important to brush your dog often because dead hair can lead to various skin diseases if left for a long time, and brushing too dry can irritate their skin, so make sure to spray them with a mist to keep them from drying out.

Step3. Dry your dog thoroughly after bathing


Different types of dogs have different grooming needs, but their skin needs are similar.

Drying your dog after every bath is a must.

If you don't dry your dog's fur well, it can cause moisture to accumulate inside the fur-covered skin, which can lead to skin irritation.

Make sure to dry your dog from the inside out to keep your skin healthy this winter!
