While some pets may not be able to tolerate cold temperatures due to a lack of hair or body fat, other dogs and cats experience a low tolerance to cold because of an underlying illness. Perhaps the most common reasons that pets may develop a low tolerance to cold is hypothyroidism and thyroid disease. However, kidney disease and chronic anemia can cause cold intolerance in dogs and cats as well.
When adding a dog or cat to your family you want to make sure your pet is happy, healthy and protected. During its lifetime your pet is exposed to many illnesses and diseases and some breeds are affected by a congenital disease which is a condition existing at birth. At these moments when your pet is ill or maybe needs surgery, you want to be protected for the unexpected and high veterinarian costs.
