Best Winter products for shih tzus

7 Feb

Shih tzus may love the snow, but they don’t always love the cold, dry weather. My shih tzu Osi loves running through the snow and playing with his other friends, but he can never stay in the snow for long because of the clumps that form in his fur. One time, he was running all around the park, but stopped after 10 minutes and began to limp, holding his small paw up in order to avoid the chilly snow. I had to give him a warm bath to get rid of the snow stuck in his paws and comb him to get rid of the knots. The whole ordeal took longer than I wanted, which is why I rely on several products to keep Osi warm, clean and healthy.
