Whatever the weather, we have the right coat to protect your pup. Here's a guide to finding the right size, fitting your coat and how to care for the coat to make sure it keeps protecting your furry friend!
Measuring Your Dog Coat
Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail
Take note of the number of centimetres this measures and match that size to the dog coat sizes available in the range.
Check with your leading retailer if you're unsure, and discuss taking your dog in to be fitted for their new coat
Watch this video for more details.
Fitting Your Dog Coat
Lay the WeatherBeeta coat along your dog's back
Slide it into the correct position on the dog
Firstly do up the chest closure area for a snug fit (but not too tight) for complete protection
Adjust and do up the belly strap to secure the cost around the dogs body (not too tight). It is essential that your dog's coat fits comfortably so they are able to still move freely and will be less likely to try and remove their coat
Caring For Your Dog Coat
Remove excess dirt, mud and hair from the coat
Remove all detergent build up from your detergent dispenser
Place the coat in a mesh wash bag to contain all the straps and buckles protecting them from being damaged and protecting your machine
Machine wash the coat on a gentle delicate cycle (front loading washer) using mild soap or a reputable and recommended coat cleaning wash (always follow the manufacturer's washing instructions)
Do not use detergents or fabric conditioners as you risk compromising your WeatherBeeta's unique waterproof and breathable coating (on select coats)
For best results, re-proof your outdoor coat to add durable water repellency and revitalise breathability. Use a reputable and recommended coat proofer (always follow the manufacturer's proofing instructions)
Line dry your WeatherBeeta coat. DO NOT tumble dry
While all WeatherBeeta dog coats can be machine washed at home, if you are in any doubt, we recommend you seek out the local services of a professional washing business.
Feeding horses a limited number of meals each day can lead to health problems, including increased incidence of gastric ulcers and hindgut acidosis. Recent research revealed another concern related to meal feeding: decreased nutrient digestibility.
Grass…sweet, fresh, appetizing…it seems like the perfect food for equines. Indeed, it’s hard to find a horse, even a picky eater, that won’t dig right in when given access to pasture. So how can this readily available, appealing, natural forage be dangerous for some horses and ponies? A closer look provides an answer: it’s not the grass itself, but the amount of a specific type of sugar within the plants, that’s the problem.
Over recent years, much more research has focused on the nutritional requirements and feeding management of the broodmare. Inadequate nutrition can have a direct influence on the fertility, conception and foaling rate of mares. Poor nutrition is a major factor that can reduce reproductive efficiency, despite good breeding management and veterinary care of otherwise healthy mares. An adequate and well-balanced nutrient intake and feeding management program is paramount to fertility and breeding success.
