Among all the fun fashion items manufactured for dogs, you might think socks are a bit ridiculous. And I might be incline to agree with you! But I’m here to tell you when and why you should put this important piece of clothing on your dog.
There are many obstacles on the sidewalk and in the back yard that can cause potential harm to young puppies, senior dogs, and teacup-size dogs.
Some of these dangers could include:
- Cigarette Butts
- Rock Salt
- Broken Glass
For dogs who slip very easily on indoor surfaces such as linoleum, anti-slip socks may help to avoid a bunch of issues. Some possible injuries include broken bones and strained or sprained muscles.
Extreme temperatures can pose some serious problems for dog paws. Hot cement can burn and ice can cause chapped, flaky skin.
