Brrrr – protect your pets!

ice-capadesNow that we are in the middle of winter, and temperatures are below freezing in many areas, it’s important to keep your pets safe and warm!

  • Antifreeze is lethal to cats and dogs, so wipe up any spills. Better yet, use products that contain propylene glycol instead of ethylene glycol.
  • Make sure your pets have a warm place to sleep, away from drafts and cold.
  • Keep your kitties indoors. You wouldn’t want them to freeze or get injured.
  • Keep your dog on leash on snow or ice so he or she doesn’t get lost.
  • If she or he loves to play outside or accompanies you on hikes or skiing, be sure to increase the amount of food you are feeding.
  • Wipe off paws and underbelly when your dog comes inside from the snow or ice.
  • If your dog needs a bath, be sure he or she is completely dry before going on a walk. Consider a coat or sweater, especially for short-haired breeds.
  • Never leave dogs or cats alone in the car – the car holds in the cold.

Don’t worry, it’ll warm up again soon!
