...and that means remembering special care for our outside or often-outside pet companions. Here are a few tips to keep in mind! And do call us with any questions at all; we are happy to consult.
We Minnesota humans are well-stocked with polar fleece, gore-tex, good boots and headgear, and it's good to remember that a pet's fur coat is not the equivalent of the way we bundle up when the wind roars and the sleet is pelting down.
Being outdoors in the winter can be a lot of fun, but it is important to keep in mind that dogs are susceptible to frostbite, hypothermia (low body temperature), and other cold-weather hazards. Dogs that live outdoors in the winter need special attention to protect them from the wind, rain, and cold.
