Cold weather can have a significant impact on your dog

Cold weather can have a significant impact on a dog’s movements, especially for older dogs with arthritis.

The cold can cause a dog’s joints to become stiffer, making it more difficult and painful for them to move. Dogs may alter their posture and gait to make themselves more comfortable, which can place additional strain on healthy legs.

Cold temperatures can also decrease blood flow to the joints, exacerbating arthritis-related inflammation and discomfort. It is important for pet owners to pay attention to any signs of mobility change and consult with a veterinarian for personalized advice and treatment options.

 

Keep your fur babies safe this weekend and give them warm snuggles!!
