Is Putting on A Trendy Coat on Your Dog for YOU or for Your Dog??

Many people like to buy trendy coats for their pooch just to make a fashion statement but are coats necessary since most dogs have a thick coat of fur protecting them? Matthew Cooper, an emergency Veterinarian at New York Veterinary Specialists, a 24 hour vet emergency clinic in Manhattan says “for the most part, it’s not necessary.”  He also says that when it comes to long walks in the cold, the dogs mind it half as much as we do.

Some Veterinarians say that thick coats can be dangerous for your dog. If they are getting lots of exercise during their walk in the cold, the heavy coats could cause heat stroke. Remember, dogs don’t catch colds and low temperatures won’t give them the sniffles.  The truth is that many dogs don’t mind the frigid temperatures one bit.  It’s money that you don’t need to spend.

A coat will help a small breed with very short hair for obvious reasons.
