Vets advise to keep pets warm

If you are unable to provide your pet with a warm shelter in the winter it’s best to buy them a coat. Larli (pictured above) has a few different options for the cold nights ahead, one even suitable for rain.

THE cool night air is beginning to fill with smoke from fireplaces warming the homes in the Rose City.

Jumpers and stockings are being pulled out of the cupboard as the cool winter winds start to chill.

But what about our four-legged friends? They have coats of fur, but is it really enough to keep them warm during the cold nights and frosty mornings?

Zoe Cox from Condamine Vet Clinic said it's recommended that our furry friends are sheltered during the winter.

"We recommend that pet owners make sure their animal has a spot to keep out of the elements," Ms Cox said.

"Whether it's a kennel, a garage or even a spot under the house out of the wind and rain."

Ms Cox said if you're unable to provide your pet with this type of shelter then they recommend buying your pet a coat.

"Sometimes a coat is a great option."
