       Hello! 1. Some dogs are afraid of the cold, and they are especially afraid of the cold, such as the Chihuahua originally from Mexico. And puppies because of their own development is not complete, so it is easy to catch cold. Special attention should be paid during this period. You can dress them; 2. First of all, dogs have their own fur. Second, covering dogs with quilts is counterproductive. Because people usually take off their clothes when they get into bed and get up and put them on again. This is regulation. But dogs wake up more, or wake up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet, this process will not have clothes, but a cold and hot easy to catch cold. If the weather is really cold, you can dress him in small clothes; 3. When the dog is in the sun (in an airless environment), he can take off his clothes and put them on when he is in the house; 4. The dog curls up to sleep, which is just a posture. In general, dogs in good health will sleep like this. If you want to see if he is cold, it depends on whether he is shivering, runny nose, sneezing, etc. 5. If the climate of Guangdong, in winter, puppies can wear single cotton padded clothes for them. Pay attention to washing and disinfection. Thin clothes for adult dogs will do. If the adult dog with long hair, there is no need to dress.

       On the issue that Teddy dogs are not afraid of being cold, cabbages think that it depends on the breed of dog. Ordinary small dogs, such as Teddy and chihuali fawn, are more afraid of cold than ordinary dogs, while Husky is very cold tolerant. Because they usually live in the room, if suddenly a long time outside is cold. In general, as long as you sleep at home with heating, you can’t freeze him. Give Teddy a little cotton pad in winter. But the problem of some medium-sized dogs is not very big. If your teddy dog has been living outdoors all the time, it doesn’t matter much. As long as you can prepare a nest that can resist the wind and cold, and a dry cushion, it can spend the winter by itself. But be sure to dry its mat regularly so that it won’t be infected with germs in wet places. So your dog can spend the winter outside without being afraid of the cold. The only thing to explain, whether big dogs or teddy dogs, if long-term indoor life, suddenly in the winter to outdoor is not adapted. Everything needs a process of adaptation, a gradual process.

       Keep pets warm when they travel

       It’s cold outside in winter. Take dogs and other pets out for a walk, should also do a good job in keeping warm. Pet doctor told pet owners, winter morning outdoor temperature is low, do not take pets out. When traveling, the dog and kitten can be placed in a warm bag or cotton bag. In this way, it can not only ensure that the animals are not frozen outside, but also prevent the pet from missing.

       Pet bath should be paid attention to

       In winter, the number of bathing for pets should not be too much. Generally, dogs should be bathed once every 5-7 days, and kittens should be 2-3 times a month. Too many times, easy to cause pet cold.

       Animals are especially afraid of the cold. To bathe kittens, you should prepare some utensils, such as bathtub, bath towel, bath liquid (not irritating to the cat’s skin), comb (metal, wood or plastic, preferably one with dense teeth and one with thin teeth), brush, degreasing cotton stick, small tweezers, eye ointment, hair dryer, etc. The depth of bath water should not submerge kittens. The best water temperature is 30 ¡æ ~ 35 ¡æ. The water temperature can be mild when tested by hand. When taking a bath, wash the head, neck, back and tail, abdomen and limbs in order, and finish it as soon as possible. After changing the water to wash clean, immediately use the dry bath towel to absorb the water on the kitten’s body. When taking a bath, keep the room warm. After washing, wrap the kitten with a thick blanket or quilt, and dry the water stains on the body with a heater.

       In addition, if the dog takes a bath immediately after exercise, it is particularly easy to catch a cold. The dog should rest for 40 minutes before washing.

       Avoid cold and raw food in winter

       Once kittens eat cold, ice food or drink raw water in winter, they are prone to digestive problems. Vomiting is also caused by cold or eating food can not digest. Therefore, in winter, it is best to feed dog and cat food to pet dogs and cats, or to add some vitamin containing vegetables such as carrots in meat. In this way, pets can get more comprehensive nutrition, and their resistance will be enhanced. Naturally, they will be able to spend the winter peacefully.

       Some owners may ask, “does my dog need supplements in addition to dog food every day?” Animal experts believe that in the cold winter, as long as the owner of the dog enough food and exercise, it will naturally be healthy and lively.

       Prevention of three diseases in dogs

       Dog disease is the most common pet disease. Pet doctor reminds dog owners to pay attention to the following symptoms, please send the dog to regular pet hospital for treatment in time:

       The symptoms of a cold in dogs are generally listless and afraid of cold, shivering all over, elevated body temperature, slightly closed eyes, photophobia and tears, runny nose, inflammation of nasal mucosa and intermittent cough, often claw nose, rapid breathing.

       The common symptom of canine parvovirus disease is vomiting first, then diarrhea, and then yellow or grayish yellow. Two to three days after the disease, the dog began to have blood in his stool, which was tomato juice like and had a special fishy smell. At this time, the dog is depressed, loss of appetite, temperature rise, especially like to drink water.

       The temperature of canine distemper rose as high as 40 ¡æ at the beginning, and then returned to normal after 1-2 days. After 2-3 days, the body temperature rose again. During the second temperature rise, respiratory symptoms appeared, such as coughing and sneezing, big red spots of rice grains, edema and purulent papules on the lower abdomen and medial skin, and vomiting often occurred.

       Three precautions for cat disease prevention

       Rickets is cold in winter and the light time is short. In sunny days and warm days, cats should be allowed to bask in the sun, especially for the growing kittens. Ultraviolet rays in sunlight can not only disinfect and sterilize, but also promote the absorption of calcium and prevent rickets.

       Cold winter season, indoor and outdoor temperature difference is big, if the cat is suddenly stimulated by cold air, it is easy to have a cold, and serious secondary respiratory disease.

       The outdoor activities of obese cats are reduced in winter. If the feeding and management are improper, obesity and diabetes can easily occur. Therefore, it is necessary to increase indoor amusing sports. Cats like to do chasing action and play with small toys, especially those with color. We can give them some ball games (such as table tennis, leather ball, etc.), small paper ball, thread ball and other toys, so that it can continuously chase and play, which can not only increase the cat’s activity, but also increase the family’s happy atmosphere.

       How do other pets spend the winter

       Rabbits and rabbits are thick enough to withstand the cold winter.

       However, if the fur is wet, rabbits are easy to catch cold. Therefore, the owner should not give the rabbit a bath in winter, and can use dry cleaning powder for the cat to clean the rabbit’s body.

       Most turtles live in the wild in winter

       During hibernation, immune and other self-protection systems slow or stop. These changes will lead to the invasion of some diseases, so the owner had better not let the sick turtle hibernate.

       For newly hatched turtles, it’s best not to let them hibernate for the first two years. For the turtles that can not hibernate, we can take measures to raise the temperature when the temperature drops in winter. If it is a tortoise, you can put ordinary desk lamp with reptile light bulb, reptile special electric blanket and heating stone in the feeding tank; if it is a turtle, you can put a constant temperature stick in the water.

       For some species of closed shell turtles, failure to hibernate can be fatal, and turtle lovers should be aware.

       When it comes to winter, fish should not only pay attention to it

       The water temperature of the fish tank, and pay attention to the feeding time. Fish culture professionals remind breeders that since winter, the first feeding time of fish is changed from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., because the temperature at 8:00 a.m. is relatively low, and the difference between water temperature and temperature is the biggest in the whole day. At 10:00 a.m., the temperature rose gradually, and the difference between water temperature and temperature was relatively small. At this time, fish were fed, which reduced the impact of low temperature on fish to a certain extent.

       In addition, make sure that the water temperature is within the range suitable for fish growth. In winter, the water temperature can be adjusted to about 20 ¡æ in order to reduce the difference between water temperature and air temperature and relatively reduce the harm of frostbite.

       In winter, caged birds are easy to catch cold and often come out

       Now nasal mucus, shortness of breath, feather inverted, hoarseness and other symptoms. So don’t walk the bird outdoors, but put the cage indoors in a windless and sunny place. Don’t bathe the birds to avoid catching cold.

       Pay attention to adding bird nutrition. The feed should be small and fine. Egg yolk or fish meal can be added to the powder food of soft food birds, and rapeseed can be added to the granular food of hard food. At the same time, pay attention to let the birds drink more water.

       Infected birds infected by the bacteria, can use a stick wrapped with cotton wool to clean the nose, and use penicillin ointment to smear the pores of the bird’s nasal cavity to maintain smooth breathing; at the same time, a piece of sulfadiazine can be ground and mixed with 100 ml water to let the infected birds drink by themselves to prevent and control cold.
