Keeping Pets Safe in Winter

Winter Safety Tips for Pets

Our region is getting hit with wind chills dropping well below zero this week.  Help keep your pets safe during these cold days and nights.

Keep your pet inside the home, if possible, or a garage or even a shed.

Check their paws and ears for frostbite and wipe paws down from any rock salt

Know their limits.  Just like people, pets cold tolerance can vary based on their coats, body fat stores, activity level and health. 

Feed them well.  During winter months, they need the extra fat to keep warm.

For outdoor dogs, make sure doghouses are elevates with dry, clean bedding and straw.
