Just like people, as dogs get older they tend to get cold more easily. I used to use plug-in heat pads until one time I noticed burn marks, and I started to think about the accidents that could happen if I was asleep or forget to turn it off when i am not around. Microwaveable heat pads are safe and can be placed under you dog’s bed, or even nearby to radiate heat. Smaller heat pads can be used on top of your dog’s body to help relieve achy bones and joints. They stay warm for an amazingly long time too!
This is also one of the items I recommend should be in your Senior Dog Care Kit!
