Our cute little pet dogsvarious rocks often freeze in the cold season. and then a walk for them becomes not a joyous event, but a real torture. How can you help your pet? Sew for him warm and comfortable clothes. In our climate in the cold season, dogs need special care. To protect the animal from hypothermia, dirt and injuries, special clothing is needed. Dog clothes should protect the chest from hypothermia (inflammation of the lungs in dogs is difficult to treat) and from dampness (wet hair quickly cools). Especially in it need short-haired and small breeds of dogs. Some "bare" breeds are cold even in summer. In older animals, hypothermia can cause arthritis (chronic inflammation of the joints). Nursing dogs need to hide mammary glands from the cold and mud to prevent the development of mastitis. With the onset of cold weather, it is recommended to wash the dog no more often than once every 2 months. More frequent bathing harms wool and skin. The wool will easily get wet. On the skin may appear intertrigo. In damp and rainy weather, you need a waterproof overall. It can be insulated or not, but it is necessarily not purged and free. Clothes should not block the movement of the dog. Choose models with long sleeves and panties. In such overalls, in any weather, the dog's coat will be dry and clean. Patterns of clothes for small dogs you can build yourself. But for a basis it is possible to accept here such basic patterns: A city dog needs winter boots. In winter, the sidewalks are sprinkled with a salt mixture. Reagents are hammered between the toes and cause difficult to heal dermatitis, eczema and ulcers. When choosing shoes, special attention to the sole. It should not be slippery. A dog may get a dislocation or injury. Boots still protect from broken glass and nails, not visible under snow. In the cold, the vessels of the paws become narrower and the dog may not feel that it is injured. Sewing shoes for your favorite dog you can yourself. Get a small piece of cloth under the skin in the store and sew shoes to your pet! In the snowy period, a warm sweater is required anda cufflink with a hood that protects the wind. For large breeds, choose models with a buckle (easier to wear). Better with lightning than with Velcro. Velcro fastens with hair. It is important to dress the dog in the weather. If the dog is young and active, preferring active games, then it is not necessary to sew warm clothes, enough light clothing and hypothermia already threatens. If, on leaving the entrance, your dog is already shivering, then, undoubtedly, it's time to dress. But do not allow a dressed dog to sit or lie on the snow. Let the animal move more. Play with it, run. So at the same time, you will strengthen your health! Be sure to purchase the necessary clothes. Sometimes it's easier to wear a dog than to solve problems. And whether this clothing is sewn by own hands or bought from a fashion designer is a matter of taste and purse.
