We, humans, know how to take care of ourselves in the cold weather. We stay warm with appropriate clothing, moisturize our skin, and drink warm fluids. But what about our pets? pets have special requirements too during the cold. And as their caretakers, we need to keep certain things in mind for the winters. Let's have a look at them!

Now, this may seem obvious, but making sure that your pet has appropriate clothing on in the cold is very very important. While some pets may be able to keep themselves warm, others aren't naturally able to do so. 

Choose the right kind of clothing for your pet, something in which it'll feel warm and cozy. You can check out some winter clothing options from our PetHub if you have a small pet, from our PupHub if you have a dog, and if you have a cat, checkout PurrHub.

Avoid getting a haircut

Pets with a long hair coat are able to keep themselves warm naturally, so if you are someone who gets regular haircut done for their pets, avoid it in the winter season.  

Keep changing the water in their bowl

In cold weather, water tends to get chilled after some time. So in order to make your pet keep drinking water and not get dehydrated in winters, keep replacing the chilled water with lukewarm water.

Arrange for a warm and cozy bedding

Just like us, humans need cozy bedding in winters, our pets too wish for it. And our pet's wish is our command, so to have a warm, thick mattress or a bed that is thick enough to save your pet from the cold floor, is really important.

Remove the clothing once a day and brush their coat

This step ensures that the fur doesn't get matted under the coat, and also give their skin some time to breathe.

If you're living in a region where there's sunlight in winters, try to do this step in the sunlight so that existing germs are likely to get killed by the sun.

To sum it up

Apart from these tips, make sure you keep your pets hydrated and cozy in the winter season. It is very important that you cater to your pets needs as and when required. But we got you covered with the essential things you need to keep in mind. 

Now go and hug your pet!
