Preparing for Winter Weather with Your Pets

hurtta-dog-outdoor-overalls-black-1We’ve been having unseasonably warm weather this year. In fact, we’ve even had a couple of flies bothering us in the warehouse, which is just not normal for Colorado in the winter. Today, however, it actually got cold!

Like people, dogs can suffer from sunburns, dehydration, and heat stroke.  But for dogs, keeping cool can be especially tricky since they can only regulate body temperature through sweating through their foot pads, by panting, and drinking water.
