I *think* cold hosing in cold weather is ok—as long as you stay ON THE LEGS. I know I have used this with great results for leg swelling issues year-round in CO & WY.

Also, hand walking can reduce swelling-lots of warm up, & bring him back slowly.

Basically, I second everything Joe Joe & Pheets have said. :)
