When the weather gets cold and ruff in Montreal, it can become more difficult to look after your pup. If you often ask yourself questions like, "Are they warm enough?" , "Should I be taking them out in this weather?" , "Should I be feeding them differently with this weather?", then this article is for you.

The following handy tips provided by Montreal's own Liesse Animal Clinic will know how to keep your pup happy & healthy this winter:

  1. Limit your dog's time outdoors

On colder days, make sure you limit the time of your dog's walks in order to make sure they stay warm.

 

2. Dress them up!

Now's the time to pull out of your dog's favourite winter gear Montreal, you'll need it! 

 

3. Take your dog's age into consideration

Just like humans, older dogs have a harder time adapting to colder temperatures. If your dog is more mature, they might have more extreme reactions to cold weather than younger pups will.

 

4. Protect your dog's paws

In the wintertime, Montreal's streets can often be covered in protective salt, rocks, or sand. While these substances are great for keeping humans from slipping, they can be damaging to your furry friend's paws. So make sure you cover them up with booties or clean them off as soon as you get indoors!
