Cold Weather is Here, Make Sure That Your Dog is Protected

DOG COLDThe temperature has been on a roller coaster ride lately.It’s that time of year when we have to start  checking the weather outside before taking our dog for a walk. When walking your dog in the cold winter months, it’s important to keep in mind that dogs are vulnerable to harsh weather conditions just like humans. Dogs have a natural coat of fur that shields them from the elements, but amongst all dogs, only a few breeds like St. Bernards and Huskies were bred to endure the cold. If your dog is not one of the few cold weather breeds, it’s best to put a sweater or fleece lined dog jacket on him during the winter. This will add an additional layer to help keep him warm and prevent frostbite and hypothermia.

It’s also a good idea to avoid walking your dog for too long outdoors, especially if he’s just walking and not running; a dog’s feet can become cold and his vulnerability to frostbite increases.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
