ICYMI it’s bloody cold outside.

And while we’re able to wrap ourselves up in coats, hats, scarves and gloves to brace the elements, we should take a moment to consider our furry friends.

One dog owner is urging us to all remember our four-legged friends after her very good boy had his paws burnt from walking on icy grass.

Sarah Garner, 31, was out walking Chase, her Border Collie, 7, on The Hams in Kempsey on Thursday morning.

She noticed something was wrong when Chase refused to walk. It was at this point she noticed blood on the grass, and quickly checked his feet.

Sarah said:

When we were coming back from our normal morning walk we noticed blood on the frosty grass and that Chase was not wanting to walk.

I could see that the bottom of his paws had appeared to burn off, so my partner quickly picked him up and rushed him to the car.

We went straight to the vets where he had his feet cleaned, dressed and he was given some pain relief and then we decided he should have laser treatment to help the healing process.

The vets think he will be out of action for the next two weeks, and he has to wear waterproof bags on his feet while the dressings are helping.
