Keep Pets Warm

Keep Pets WarmWhen the weather outside is cold, everyone knows it is important to keep warm. But, what many people don’t realize is that it is also important to keep pets warm in this kind of weather. Mistakenly, many believe that the fur on an animal’s body is enough to withstand even the coldest of temperatures. This, however, isn’t true.

While a pet’s fur will keep them warm to a point, the fur doesn’t offer complete protection from bad weather. This is especially true for snow and rain. Even if the weather isn’t wet, your pet’s fur is still not enough for them to be able to safely stay warm if the temperature drops extremely low.

One of the best ways to keep your pets warm in the wintertime is the obvious—keep them inside. If the temperature will be dropping, you can simply bring pets indoors to allow them to stay warm all winter long. If it is possible for you to bring pets indoors for the winter, you should create a sleep area for them that is in a warm part of the house, and allow them to have a pet bed, blankets, or other items to help them keep warm. Many pet owners prefer to keep their pet in a pet carrier with blankets at night. These often give the pet comfort while staying warm, plus they give the owners peace of mind that the pet is not running around tearing anything up while they sleep.

If it isn’t possible for you to bring your pet indoors for cool weather, there are still a few things you can do to help make it as warm as possible for your pet while outdoors in dreary cold weather. The first, and possibly most important thing, is to provide your pet with some sort of shelter from the cold. While a pet carrier can work in this situation, it is best to use a better form of protection, such as a doghouse. These are made thicker (and the better ones even include such amenities as insulation and shingles on the roof). Providing your pet with a shelter such as this can keep wind, rain, and snow out, and this can keep your pet significantly warmer all winter long.

The placement of the pet’s sleep area is also very important. You should put it out of the way of the north wind to prevent much of the cold from coming in. By placing your pet’s house on the south side of either your own home or another building that can block the cool air, you will be helping your pet stay warm all winter long.

Another way to keep your pets warm even when they have to stay outside a lot is to provide them with an animal bed, covers, and even sweaters. While it may seem a bit redundant to put a furry sweater on top of your pet’s existent fur, it can help keep pets warm to do this.

By following the above guidelines, and by remembering that you must take precautions to keep your pets warm in the wintertime, you can help avoid illness or even death that could otherwise be caused by the cold weather.
