1. Serve warm food: Aren’t you warming up your food multiple times during winter? Well, dogs are no different. Dogs digest food similarly to humans, therefore, we should infer that warm meals help them similarly to how they benefit us.

To ensure that they are getting the proper amount of nutrition, you can add supplements to their diet or top up their meals with nutrition topper.

3. Signs of nutritional deficiencies: You know how your knees ache and back ache? How you have spots on your body due to deficiency? Similarly, pets, like humans, can exhibit indications of malnutrition such as dull, brittle coats and dry, flaking skin. Check for these symptoms and make the necessary dietary modifications.

5. Water intake: Since most pets don’t drink much water in the winter, be sure to include it in their meals so they keep hydrated and always have access to fresh water.
