Winter is coming, or How to prevent a dog from freezing?
In the autumn and winter months, the dog’s health needs to be taken care of even more. Sudden changes in temperature, rains, frosts, drafts at home – all this can weaken the immune system and make the body defenseless against many diseases. How to help your pet cope with the weather and keep it healthy?
What do you dream about when you run away on business on a frosty morning? Perhaps a cup of hot cocoa and a cozy rug? Your dog dreams of the same thing! Only instead of cocoa – a treat, and instead of a blanket – a warm, comfortable bed.
A lounger should be in every house where there is a dog. Its presence is especially relevant in the autumn and winter, when the heating has not yet been switched on or the batteries are warming badly, and drafts are walking around the house.
Contrary to stereotypes, a special bed for a dog is not an excess, but a necessity. A properly selected bed not only gives the pet a good sleep, but also:
protects against drafts and colds;
provides prevention of arthrosis and other diseases of the musculoskeletal system and joints;
prevents the formation of ulnar corns, which inevitably appear in a dog if it regularly lies on a hard surface.
Of course, for lack of an alternative, the dog can sleep on the bare floor. But a bare floor or even a thin rug will not warm the dog in the cold period and will not protect it from drafts. Namely, drafts most often lead to the occurrence of such “sticking” diseases such as cystitis.
How to prevent a dog from freezing?
Loungers can solve all these problems: due to a special warm material, convenient shape and high sides that do not allow drafts. In the case of puppies, “high-breasted” loungers generally become a real salvation: warm soft sides give the kids a sense of protection, as if they were still under mom’s side. So puppies get used to a new place more easily, sleep better and do not disturb the owners at night.
In pet stores you can find a huge number of couches for every taste of the owner and for any characteristics of the dog.
