Providing Pomeranian care is a natural part of being a dog owner. Therefore, it shouldn’t be something you resent or dislike. Instead, you should look forward to the many ways you can improve and maintain the health and wellbeing of your Pomeranian. The more you know about how to care for your Pomeranian, the happier you and your dog will be.
Although grooming your dog and taking him to the Vet for regular checkups is all part and parcel to Pomeranian care, there are other aspect you need to consider when looking out for the wellbeing of your dog.
For instance, if you live in a city where the climate changes and becomes cold, or you take your Pom on different types of terrain when walking, you should think about purchasing dog boots for your Pomeranian.
You may think it’s silly to put foot protection on your dog, but if you take into account that protecting your dog’s paws can really prevent injuries such as cuts from sharp rocks, or frostbite from ice and snow, suddenly investing in doggie boots doesn’t sound so silly.
The following are the three main benefits of dog boots for Pomeranian care:
- Protection from harsh terrain – Ex. Hot asphalt, snow, ice, mud, moisture, thorns, burs, rocks, salt, gravel, etc.
- Insulates and keeps feet warm – Dog boots are designed to cover a substantial portion of the leg, aside from the feet. This helps to warm the joints and muscles of the leg, as well as the feet, and also keeps them dry.
- Absorbs shock – when the dog’s feet make contact with the ground, shock is sent up the leg. Over a period of time, constant walking on hard terrain can encourage health problems in Poms such as slipped stifles, boots can help absorb the shock.
In addition, if your Pomeranian happens to get a cut on his foot, dog boots help to make walking more comfortable, keep the wound clean, and prevent the Pom from gnawing at his foot.
When it comes to selecting dog boots for Pomeranian care, you will find that there are many different brands to choose from on the market. Despite what style, color, or type of boots you may choose for your Pom, it is important that you choose the right size fit for your dog.
Therefore, before you make your purchase, you should first measure the front paw of your Pom. Start from the heel and measure to the nails (not the fur). The boots should fit snug. If they are too loose, they will fall off, and your dog will find them uncomfortable to walk in.
You can find dog boots for Pomeranian care at your local pet store and at many different online pet stores.
