The coup cold at your companion


 Unlike heat, cold coup are also at your companion.

 Sometimes your pet is exposed to cold for too long and does not protect against this.

 The resistance at low temperatures depends on the breed that owns your dog. 

 Indeed, the Nordic breeds like Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute or the mountains of the Pyrenees are built to withstand the cold and have a hair and a hair thick and abundant.

In contrast, Chihuahuas, Yorkshires and Bichons for example, have a coat less abundant and their small size makes them more susceptible.

The dog's age also influences their resistance to cold, animals and younger senior citizens are generally more fragile.

 The symptoms are as follows:

 Your companion tremble, his reflexes are reduced, it seemed dazed, it can hardly move, her skin was discolored and painful.

It could very quickly fall into a coma.


 You must respond immediately and save your companion in a bath of 40 °, see what a head is supported at this stage because your dog had almost more reaction could plunge his head in the water and drown.

Thereafter made him a gentle massage of the skin and its muscles in him speaking to the exit of his condition.

Direct contact your veterinarian.


The animals left outside without adequate shelter during frost risk frostbite and hypothermia.

Frostbite usually occur on the legs, ears and tail when ice crystals form in the fabric.

Unfortunately, frostbite is not immediately obvious: several days may pass before that signs of damage occur.

If you think your pet is suffering from frostbite, immediately call your veterinarian.

Preventing cold feet:

Treating the legs of your pet is another way to prolong their happiness during the winter months.

The dogs often have scoops of ice between the pads of their feet and their toes, which is very painful.

Finally prevent this from occurring, cut the hair around your dog's paws and put on them a small amount of petroleum jelly, or spray them with an aerosol cooking before him to take a walk on the outside.

Gently wipe the underside of his legs when it enters the house to remove the coarse salt on the street.

In your next outings with your companion so be careful.

See you soon .................
