1、 Transfer the poodle to a warm room

During the period of cold, the resistance of the poodle is poor. Let it stay in a cold place, such as the wind outlet, will make the poodle’s cold can not get better, and even aggravate its condition.
When necessary, the entire room should be turned on to warm the poodles. If there is no heating, move to a room with no wind. When the poodle wants to rest, it should be covered with a small blanket (a hot water bag should be placed next to it in winter), which helps to drive away from the cold and recover health as soon as possible.

2、 Take cold products in time to improve cold

If the poodle’s cold symptoms are serious and cannot be cured by itself, the owner should give the dog some cold products in time to relieve the cold.
