Winter is here: keep pets healthy by keeping them warm

keep pets a safe distance from artificial heat sources
Farf appreciates the heater...from a safe distance.

Farf is a little rescue pomeranian. When the temperature drops, he enjoys basking in front of the heater, relaxing in a warm bed and...well...basking in front of the heater.
Soft bedding is gentle on arthritic joints in senior pets
Farf relaxes on his RSPCA pet bed. Extra padding is especially important for senior dogs with arthritis.

Remember that pets should not be left unattended in the presence of an artificial heat source - that includes the humble hot water bottle. Thermal burns can occur easily and might not appear for days after the event.
Always supervise pets near artificial heat sources
Farf continues to enjoy the heater...
BTW, Farf is a beautiful rescue dog whose owners are absolutely besotted with all 1.5 kilograms of him.
