Keeping Your Apartment Puppies Warm This Winter

January 15, 2019

Cuddling up with your pup by the fire sounds like an ideal way to wind down and warm up during the winter season.

But what about when it’s time to go outside? How will your pup stay warm and healthy this winter? Just as we take extra steps and precautions for the winter, i.e. flu shots, we need to do the same for our dogs. Take a look at three tips we have gathered to help keep apartment puppies warm and healthy.

Add Extra Layers

Most apartment puppies are small but if they’re small and short-haired and living in a winter environment, then it’s likely they’re going to be cold. The best way to warm them up is by adding layers. That’s right…layers and by that we really mean clothing. Take the time to go shopping for your dog. Stock up on a few sweaters and there are even thick puffy coats for dogs. Your pups deserve the same warmth that you’d afford to yourself while going out on walks!

Monitor Their Nutrition

You are the only person in control of your dog’s diet so it’s your responsibility to feed your dog the best food available and possible. Quality and healthy dog food should consist of and be rich in fatty acids, vitamin E, and copper-zinc. Consult your veterinarian about how to add vitamins and fatty acids to your pet’s food if you’re unsure. All of these will help to promote shiny, healthy coats in addition to several other benefits. You can also give your dog warm drinking water in winter.

Fight Off Dry Skin

As we mentioned above, having a healthy diet will promote healthy, shiny, fur. The above also helps to keep your dog’s skin from drying out and being uncomfortable during the winter season. While Old Man Frost is outside, bathe your apartment puppies as little as possible to keep their skin from being dry. When you do, make sure the shampoo is pet-friendly, as human ones are harsh and acidic to their skin causing dryness and itchiness.
