About Your Dog or Cat in Freezing Weather
Is it to cold outside for furry friends?
The amount of cold or heat an animal can take depends on the animal's internal comfort zone due to the environment they live in and not the breed of the animal.

If the body is not given the time to adjust to the climate changes then the body goes into shock like leading to hypothermia, this can happen quickly when the animal is working or slowly if the animal is resting.
All of a sudden you might find your dog or cat panting and unable to stand, they will get worst and can die if the temperature of the body is not brought back a comfortable level fast.
Either extreme reaction to the climate is treated the same. You have to reverse or bring the animal back from the extreme.
