SUPPAW is a social network for Hong Kong pet lovers to get connected. We are aspiring to become a one-stop pet shop with all pet-related services and act as a pro-bono animal adoption platform.
Skin & Coat Care
Take good care of their natural coats. For long-haired dogs, you need to brush them every day; for short-haired breeds, it's recommended to brush them 2-3 times a week. Cats will groom themselves, but you can brush them twice a week or more.
Be careful not to bathe your dog too often during winter, because overwashing your dog's skin can cause irritation.
Keep your pets safe and make sure their beds are away from your household heaters, preventing our furry friends from overheating or burning their fur and skin. Overprotecting your pet from the cold may weaken their immune system.
Your pets' gastrointestinal function may be weakened during cold weather. Pay attention to their diet and control the excess fat accumulation. You may provide them with some nutritious food as supplements, e.g. eggs, fish, and vegetables, so to maintain their nutritional balance.
