Keep Your Dog Safe This Winter
The other morning I was surprised to step outdoors and find frozen "white stuff" on the ground. Already? Couldn't Mother Nature wait another month? Who am I kidding...this is New England we're talking about.
If you're on Facebook a lot you may have come across several images of dogs covered in a light coating of snow. These images come with a reminder that "if it's too cold for you, it's too cold for your dog." The old belief that dogs can handle long periods of time in the cold and snow is a myth. In fact, long exposure to extreme cold can be fatal.
Regardless of how thick your dog's fur is or what type of breed, you need to take precaution in the winter months. There are some breeds that do enjoy the colder weather however, you still need to monitor their tolerance during Old Man Winter's wrath.
