Clothes For Your Pet - Yay Or Nay?

When you look around, you’ll see that some owners put clothes on their pets. While the pets look adorable, the primary consideration should still be the comfort of the pet.

Pet clothes are initially made to keep the animals safe from extreme environmental conditions. When it’s cold, pets will surely feel warm on a cozy sweater. But now, clothes are used as fashion statements especially on Halloween.

If you want your pet to wear clothes, you should be sensitive to their body language. They may appear uncomfortable because clothes restrict their movement. For one, cats cannot groom their body parts that are covered with clothes. Second, the elastic part of the costume could block the blood circulation in that area. In fact, there have been reports of pets that lost their limbs because the blood circulation was blocked for a long time. Your best option would be to use clothes with a breakaway collar. This style allows better flexibility, provided that your pet is used to wearing a collar.

If you have any concerns about your pet’s health and/or behavior, call your vet clinic Louisville, KY. Click this website to learn more.
