Grrrrrr, It’s Cold Outside!

Old man winter is here and with it brings cold, and sometimes, dangerous temperatures.

Remember that even though your dog has a built in fur coat he or she gets cold too! When exercising with your pet in cold weather you are the thermometer; if you are cold, your pet is probably cold too. Your dog should not be exposed to temperatures lower than 45° F for more than 45 minutes.

While our furry four-legged friends can generally tolerate lower temperatures better than we can, the cold still creates many of the same concerns as in humans. Make sure your pet is completely dry after bathing before going outside. Concern for frostbite is heightened in wet and windy conditions and commonly affects the feet, tail, ears and nose. Short coated breeds or those who get close grooming should have coat or sweater covering as much of the body as possible. So bundle up out there and stay warm!

More dogs are lost during the winter than any other season. Keep the dogs on leashes, tags and microchips are critical.
