With winter quickly approaching, it’s important to keep your pets safe and comfortable, especially in the cold weather. Exposure to winter’s dry, cold air and chilly precipitation can cause chapped paws, dry, itchy skin, and many other discomforts to your four-legged friend—including serious concerns like frostbite and hypothermia.
Your pets, like you, should spend most of their time indoors during the cold winter season. Certain breeds of dogs may be able to spend more time outside, (and some might thoroughly enjoy it) but it is important to know your pet’s personal cold weather limits.
Providing warm, comfortable places for your pet to spend its time, as well as keeping track of winter-specific hazards, is the best way to ensure you share a cozy, safe winter with your four-legged family members.
