Preparing Your Pets for Winter Wellness

Preparing Your Pets for Winter Wellness

As winter approaches, it is crucial for pet owners to proactively address the unique needs of their companions. Beyond the common concerns of cracked paws and dry skin, there are a few other strategies to ensure your pets thrive during the cooler months. 

Nutritional Enhancements 

Consider incorporating eggs and whole oily fish into your pet’s diet. If they are already present, adjusting their quantity can have added benefits. Eggs are rich in Biotin (Vitamin B7), which plays a pivotal role in supporting enzymatic functions that break down fat, carbohydrates, and protein. This essential vitamin contributes to maintaining healthy skin and coat while aiding in the repair of brittle nails.

Whole oily fish, a powerhouse of Omega-3 fatty acids, offer unparalleled advantages for your pet’s skin, coat, and overall well-being. During the cold months, these essential fatty acids are proven to be especially beneficial for pets suffering from joint issues or arthritis. By increasing your pet’s Omega-3 intake, you can effectively reduce inflammation and alleviate any associated discomfort.

Refer to the suggested feeding chart provided below to determine how many quail eggs and sardines to add to your pet’s diet. For those already incorporating Iron Will Raw Quail Eggs or Sardines, consider adding 1 - 2 extra servings per week for a nutrient boost during the winter months. If your pet has joint concerns or arthritis, please consult your veterinary team to determine if adjusting beyond our recommendation would be advised to increase their Omega-3 intake and provide relief.

For those who prefer the warmth of a roaring fireplace instead of outdoor snowy adventures, indoor enrichment is key. Activities that stimulate your pet’s minds and prolong mealtimes are fantastic. Utilizing lick mats, puzzle feeders, or stuffable toys will make your indoor experience much more enriching for your pet.
