Pet Preparedness for Cold Weather

Contributed

If you’re cold, your pets are too! Make sure you keep your pets safe and warm this winter with these tips:

  • Always bring your pets inside when temperatures are below freezing.
  • Wipe off your dog’s paws after going outside in winter. Ice-melting chemicals can make pets sick.
  • Don’t let pets lick antifreeze. Your pets may think it’s sweet, but it’s poisonous for them to eat.
  • If you see pets wandering outside in cold weather, call your local animal control agency.
