Winter is here and it’s time to bring out the doggy boots, and cold-weather gear to make those chilly walks more comfortable for your dog. But some breeds aren’t feeling uncomfortable in the snowy weather. To them, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. They’re happy to eat snowflakes, chase snowballs, slide down snowy hills, and make snow angel-dogs while you stand there freezing. These cute dogs are having a blast in the snow!
For some of us, cold winter weather is annoying and unpleasant; for others, it’s a fun time filled with snowboarding, skiing and other winter joys. Whatever your viewpoint on winter, one thing remains the same for all of us with pets: winter is a time when our beloved four-legged friends need a little extra care. Here’s a list of tips to keep your pet healthy and safe this winter.

Then you are probably dealing with mange. Watching your pet suffer like that is heartbreaking, but luckily mange is treatable. Here’s what you need to know about mange in dogs.
The choice of euthanizing a pet is one of the most difficult things for pet owners to do. But since euthanasia continues to be an option for all of us who do not want our terminally-ill pet to suffer, it is a decision some of us eventually have to face.
