DID YOU KNOW HEATING AFFECTS PETS?

Getting home in winter and feeling the warmth of the home is so comfortable, especially if heating is on. But sometimes, the heating can affect our pets, especially if it is excessively high.

Animals, like humans, suffer negative consequences faced with sudden change of temperature; that is, heat and cold. When we return from a walk with our pet, a strong contrast between the street temperature and the one at home can cause colds, sore throat or other respiratory problems in your pet, suffering, in the most serious cases, bronchitis or pneumonia.

When we talk about our pet, we also mean cats. They are affected by heating especially in their fur. They love to climb to the top of the radiators and enjoy a heat that we could not bear. That artificial heat tricks their body, thinking is moulting season.

Other pets affected by high heating are birds. The environment can become dry and the lack of humidity is bad for their health, like favouring dehydration.

Preventing heating can affect to the health of our pet is easy. It is only necessary to regulate the temperature properly to get a pleasant temperature inside the house and avoiding being excessive. This will not only help animals, it will also protect us from typical winter diseases, such as colds.

As for small, hairless, short-haired or elderly dogs, the best option is dress them with a coat when we go to take them out, so that the contrast is even less.
