Winter Is Coming!! Here Are 7 Ways To Care For Your Dog!!
As the year comes to an end, it brings with it a nip in the air. The cool breeze in the mornings, the wonderful comfortable warmth of the sun during the day and the cold evenings are a welcome change from the sweltering summer! While we get ready for winters and stock up on warm clothes, it is also the time to pay extra care and attention to our pooches.
As the temperatures fall, our dogs are more susceptible to falling ill due to the sudden change in the weather. Dogs cannot express what they are feeling, so pet parents will have to be a tad careful especially about the change in temperatures and dietary requirements of their pooches.
We bring to you a list of things to keep in mind during this winter to make winters a more fun time for you and your furry friend!
It is quite understandable that during winters it is difficult to get up early in the morning to go out for a run or a jog. Though we can probably do away with in house exercises like yoga, our pooches will probably not be happy without their daily exercises. A regular exercise regime will help keep the dog healthy and active. It will also help in maintaining their calorie intake and in weight management. A good jog / run with your pooch will be a good way to stay fit and both of you can enjoy the magical wonderland of the winters.
Fiber Rich Diet
During winters, many a times the activities of the dogs get restricted due to the cold outside. Due to the decrease in the level of exercise, the dog will burn less calories than earlier. It will be a good idea to give a fiber rich diet to the dogs so that it regulates their bowel movement and also keeps the extra calories at bay. Also, in summers we have the tendency to give cold milk / curd to our pooches. During winters, heating up the food a little will be beneficial for the dogs. It will be imperative to keep the water and food bowls clean and also to keep the dog well dehydrated.
