Health conditions. Certain health conditions, such as arthritis, can be aggravated by cold weather. If you notice your dog or cat limping, or just not being as active as usual on cold days, have them examined by your veterinarian. There are many treatments that can help ease arthritis pain and make your pet more comfortable.
