Should we put Sweaters, Coats, and Boots on our Pets in Cold Weather?

Think of it this way…does your pet have a heavy or light hair coat? Some pets are just not genetically suited for some environments; they have been transplanted there. Larger dogs with a dense hair coat, such as the Siberian Husky, Malamute and Saint Bernard breeds, are suited to the cold temperatures. Short haired breeds, such as the Chihuahua, Greyhound, many terriers and pinschers would do well with an extra outer insulation. Additionally, your puppies, older and disabled pets may have a more difficult time regulating their body temperature. Do you keep your heating system turned down low and rely...

How can the Cold Weather Affect your Pet?

Just like their human companions, pets’ tolerance for the cold differs from pet to pet, depending upon their coat, activity level, health, etc. You should become aware of each of your pets’ tolerances so you can treat them accordingly.It makes sense that long haired pets may tolerate the cold better than our short haired pets, although they too can still be at risk in the cold weather. As our pets with short hair have shorter legs, their bellies are closer to the accumulated snow on the ground and they become colder much faster. We have to be especially observant with...
