jpegWhen temperature drop, pets need to be brought indoors or given proper shelter in out buildings such as a barn . They cannot survive in sub-zero temperatures and will suffer from hyperthermia. Dog and cat fur isn;t enough when the snow is falling and pets can  die from exposure to the freezing elements. Even indoor pets may need an extra layer of warmth. Seeing its nearly Xmas, a consider a fun ugly sweater. Your pooch can wear it on all December long and well into the New Year and really celebrate the season.

If you have sweaters your dog isn’t wearing, consider donating “as good as new” products to your local shelter.

Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
