Is your canine companion at risk of turning into a chilly dog? It is important to know how cold is TOO cold to leave your dog outside. In this episode of Ask Dr. Andy, we tackle this important pet health question!



There are two important things to consider when deciding if the temps have dropped too low for your pet to be outdoors.

1) All dogs are not created equal.



2) If it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for your pet.



Always exercise good judgement.

Cold temperatures can be dangerous, and even life-threatening, to pets. Watch the full episode of Ask Dr. Andy below, and be sure to subscribe to the Cone of Shame channel on Youtube for more information to keep your pet safe and healthy.
