Brrr... Keeping Pets Warm in Winter

Winter time is here and we are all preparing to keep ourselves warm and cosy during those freezing temperature months.

While we think that our pets fur will keep them insulated & protect them from the elements it is a good idea to provide added warmth and protection from those freezing cold days and nights.

Some tips for providing extra warmth for your pets are:
- Provide a warm enclosure for your pet to sleep in that not exposed to the elements.
- Elevate their sleeping quarters off the ground this is particularly relevant for older arthritic pets
- Provide extra blankets that are warm & dry
- Provide your animal with a pet coat
- On extra cold days you can place a warm hot water bottle underneath their bedding inside their enclosures, to add extra warmth
- If your pet is an indoors you can always snuggle up with them on the couch, but always make sure they have a space they can go to if they feel they need to get away from the warmth of the room
- It also important to keep up with exercising your pet, providing  a balanced diet & plenty of water during the winter months.
