Four Great Ideas on Keeping Your Pet Warm This Winter
The winter weather is coming - ready or not! Whether you are from the north or south, it’s best to be prepared for the chilly temperatures that are heading your way. Not only will you need a coat, but your pet might too!
Here are a few important reminders on how to keep your pet warm during cold weather months.
1. Always keep your dog on the leash when there is snow on the ground.
Dogs can easily lose track of their scent when it is covered by snow - this poses a severe threat to their safety and surroundings.
Not only will this increase the likelihood of losing your pet, but it can also increase the risk of dogs falling into icy waters. More dogs get lost in the winter more than any other time of year.
Keep their collars fastened!
2. After letting your pet outside, use a warming pad.
The drastic change in temperatures can be difficult for your pet’s body to adjust too. A warming pad is worth the investment in order to ensure they can warm back up after being in the chilly snow for an extended period of time.
Our Thera-Pawz Warming Pad is the perfect Self-Heating Pad for both dogs and cats. It's a great solution to combating the drafty air.
3. Never shave your pet’s fur during the winter months.
Let their coats thicken to allow them to better insolate their bodies when needed most. If you find your pet is shaking from the chilly air, dressing them in a cozy sweater and or pajamas is a great idea.
Our favorite is the Sweet Dreams Dog Pajamas that are stretch cozy super soft cotton with an open tail end for potty breaks.
4. If your pet suffers from stiff joints
