What to Feed Your Dog in Winters


Winters have started and your canine companion needs special care and attention during this season. It’s time to take a close look at the diet of your pooch because the chances are he is going to be less active than he typically is during the summer season. In cold weather, many dog owners are not so keen to take their dogs out for very long walks, as they do in the summer. If a dog gets less exercise, he will not use up as many calories, which results he doesn’t need to be fed the same amount of food. If you feed your pet exactly the same way as you do in summer season, they run the risk of gaining weight which in turn puts his health at risk. Therefore, in winter give your pooch less food as you used to give in summer season.

The temperature in the winters is very low, and the food is also easy to cold. Therefore, you should let your dog eat the entire food before the food become cold. In addition to this, you should add cream, viscera, milk, and give those foods that contain vitamin A and fat. It will enhance your dog’s ability of fighting cold. Make sure not to offer these foods to your dog for a very long time, otherwise you will hurt your dog’s health. For example, if your pooch drinks milk for long period, he may suffer from diarrhoea and other symptoms. If you feed your dog carrots (rich in vitamin A) for a long time, it may cause the dog poisoning. Therefore, it is advised that you should distribute the dog food reasonably and offer more pet products for your dog.

Another commonly ignored winter need is adequate water. Dogs can dehydrate quickly in the winter as in the summer. Therefore, often check the water bowl of your dog. Though many dogs eat snow, yet it is not an enough substitute for fresh water. In fact, eating snow can be dangerous for your dog, especially if vehicles are nearby, as they pose a possible antifreeze threat. This antifreeze is quite toxic and even a small amount can be fatal for pooch.
