It's that time of year when we bundle up before heading outside. It can get cold outside here in New Mexico during the fall and winter, and the best place for your family pet is right inside bundled up next to you. However, if your pet has to be outside, be sure to monitor them constantly and provide them with an insulated, warm shelter to get out of the cold. Remember - if it is cold for you, it is cold for your pet!
