    Default Does anyone use hock warmers in the winter

    My guy's hock is getting pretty stiff now that the temperature has dropped at night( upper 30's- low 40's) . I thought a little extra warmth wouldn't hurt. I would like a pair that is warm at night but would still be comfortable during the day when temps get into at least the 70's.

    He is pretty furry so I don't think he needs a blanket unless it will act like a down vest and keep his body warm so that more blood can go to his extremities.

    Thoughts? Recommendations?
