How to prep your pets for the holiday season

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 2, 2013) - As the holidays approach, it's great to include your four-legged family members in the festivities. Michele Dixon, a Health and Nutrition Specialist with Petcurean, an independent company that creates premium-quality recipes for dogs and cats, suggests considering these tips to help provide a healthy and happy holiday for your pet:

• Cooler weather usually brings dry air. Using a humidifier will help keep our dog or cat's nose from drying out. Drier air can also dry out a pet's coat and skin. A dog or cat food with omega oils, like GO! SENSITIVITY + SHINE, will help support a healthy coat and skin.

• Choose pet-friendly ice and snow melters that won't irritate paws or stomachs, especially if your dog or cat licks its paws after being outside.

• Protect your dog's paws with a wax product designed for this purpose by forming a dense, breathable bond, which helps prevent snow buildup during outdoor exercise. After walks wipe away any snow or ice from your dog's feet, legs and belly.

• Poor weather and decreased daylight may cause limited visibility for drivers at night, so take extra precautions, including using a leash, when walking your pets.
