Frequent Issues with Dogs in the cold

A few typical issues that can afflict dogs in the winter include:

  1. Dogs’ skin can get dry in the cold, which can result in flaky, itchy skin and even hot spots.

2. Short-haired dogs could be more susceptible to becoming cold and would benefit from donning a sweater or coat.

3. The paws of a dog can become irritated by the salt and other de-icing agents used on sidewalks and highways. After walks, make sure to use a moist cloth to clean off any salt or chemicals from your dog’s paws.

4. A dog’s activity level may drop in cold weather, which may result in weight gain. Ensure that your dog’s nutrition is adjusted appropriately, and encourage them to exercise frequently.

5. Dogs are susceptible to frostbite, particularly on their tail, paws, and ears. Make sure your dog has access to a shelter and a warm area to relax if they must spend a lot of time outside in really cold weather.
