Taking care of pets in winter: what changes
Pet care in winter requires a lot of attention and, above all, a good knowledge of the real needs and requirements of our four-legged friends. Caring for a dog or cat means being able to choose the best foods to ensure a healthy, balanced diet. Not only, taking care of your pet also means using products that are effective and free of substances that are dangerous to their health. In some seasons, caring for our four-legged friends requires a little extra attention.
In winter, for example, low temperatures can put a strain on the health of animals, especially small and short-haired ones. The latter are unable to retain heat easily and are therefore more affected by the cooling climate. Not only that, diet also is very important, choosing foods that guarantee a higher calorie intake. In short, winter certainly requires a whole series of precautions. It’s absolutely necessary to avoid discomfort and health problems for our four-legged friends.
Natural products for pet care: the benefits of Aloe Vera
In this regard, at Benessence we recommend NALEN, an Aloe Vera juice for pets to drink. The product is able to promote digestion and is an excellent remedy in cases of lack of appetite, constipation or vomiting. The supplement supports the digestive system naturally and you can use it as an alternative to enzymes and probiotics. NALEN is also perfect for extremely lively and hyperactive animals.

Acemannan also provides high protection for the nerve lining. Promotes a better and more efficient electrical connection that helps to quickly calm agitation. Finally, Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. An excellent remedy for strengthening the immune system and preventing infections and other diseases. NALEN is a completely natural product and is suitable for any type of pet, even in winter.
How to wash your dog in winter
Of course, the use of the supplement should always be accompanied by a healthy, balanced diet. Not only that, a correct diet should be followed by constant and thorough grooming. Washing animals in winter, however, can be rather complicated. Cleaning cannot be done outdoors and must be done indoors. Consequently, you will need to find the most suitable space, which will vary according to the size of the animal. In the case of a small dog, for example, it will be sufficient to find a fairly large bowl. If, on the other hand, the dog is bigger, it is advisable to opt for the shower. Fill the bowl with warm water and add a few drops of mild shampoo.
At Benessence, we recommend NAVIT, a natural shampoo based on aloe vera, designed to prevent irritation while respecting your pet’s skin. Its delicate formula, enriched with extracts of grapefruit, geranium and lemongrass. Guarantees a fragrant wash and effective, natural protection with an insect-repellent effect. The shampoo is perfect for cleaning any pet and can be used to wash your dog or cat in winter. After washing, your four-legged friend can also dry himself outdoors. In this case, however, the advice is to carry out the cleaning on a warm, sunny day.
