Cold weather tips for pets


kachel[11] Oh, the weather outside is frightful! But, inside your home it’s warm and so delightful! Learn how to protect your kitties, pooches, and all other furry little friends by following these tips when the temperature takes a dip.Don’t leave cats outside all night but make sure they are indoors again by bedtime. Dogs as well, should not be kept outside when it’s cold.

Never let your dog run around off his leash on snow or ice, especially during a snowstorm. Dogs might lose their scent in snow and ice and become lost.

Wipe off your dog’s paws, legs, and stomach when he comes in from the snow or ice. Salt or other chemicals might make your dog sick if he swallows them while licking his paws. What’s more, his paw pads are sensitive and might bleed if snow or ice covers them.

If your dog has very short hair or is an elderly dog think about getting him a warm doggie coat or sweater. Make sure he is protected on top and on his belly.

 Never leave your dog, cat or any other animal alone in a car in cold weather! A car can act as a refrigerator and your animal could freeze.

Some dogs may be sensitive to the cold because they are sick, old, or simply just the breed (type of dog) they are. If your dog is sensitive, try not to keep them outside too long.

If your dog spends lots of time outside playing with you, make sure you and your family give him plenty of food and water to keep his fur thick and healthy all through the winter.

Make sure all of your animal friends have a warm place to sleep that’s off the floor and away from places where cold air might get in. They would be happy and warm in a doggie or kitty bed or on a warm blanket.
