CASPER, Wyo. There are some dogs that are made for the cold and even prefer it, but you still need to be careful with their paws and getting snow stuck in them.
One local veterinarian said the smaller animals are like us, meaning if we can't stand the cold, neither can they.
"Sweaters can help a little bit. They're definitely not a replacement they still can't be outside for lengthy periods, Just like it would be for us, a little jacket outside without anything, boots and everything else covering us, They're prone to still some cold hypothermia." Said Dr. Angela Bell.
She also said if you try to heat your animal back up, make sure it is not with something too warm or you risk burning them.
She suggested a warm towel from the dryer.
