If it's too cold for you, it's probably too cold for your pet, humane society says
OMAHA, Neb. —
With the temperatures in the single digits and winter in full swing, your pets need to stay warm, too.
The Nebraska Humane Society said not to leave your dogs or cats outside for too long.
Dogs with thicker fur may be OK outside for longer periods of time, but smaller dog's feet get colder faster.
Humane society representatives said if it's too cold for you, odds are, it's too cold for your pet.
"They're going to get colder faster just like people who are in that same situation or people who are ill, same thing with dogs," Kathy Guinane said. "Dogs who are ill in some way or older or younger, it makes a big difference on them, they can't handle it as well."
The best solution for your dog is to buy them a coat or boots as long as it doesn't bother them, and for your cats, keep them inside where it's warm.
