Brr...it's cold outside!

 Tips to help protect your pet during the cold winter months:

  1. Keep your cat inside. Outdoors, felines can freeze, become lost or be stolen, injured or killed.  
     
  2. During the winter, outdoor cats sometimes sleep under the hoods of cars. When the motor is started, the cat can be injured or killed by the fan belt. Bang loudly on the car hood before starting the engine to give the cat a chance to escape. 
     
  3. Make sure your dogs wears their ID tags.Never let your dog off the leash on snow or ice, especially during a snowstorm, dogs can easily become lost. 
     
  4. Thoroughly wipe off your dog's legs and stomach when he comes in out of the sleet, snow or ice. He can ingest salt, antifreeze or other potentially dangerous chemicals while licking his paws. 
     
  5. Never shave your dog down to the skin in winter, as a longer coat will provide more warmth. When you bathe your dog in the colder months, be sure to completely dry him before taking him out for a walk. If you own a short-haired breed consider getting him a coat or sweater with a high collar or turtleneck with coverage. 
     
  6. Never leave your dog or cat alone in a car during cold weather. 
  7. Like coolant, antifreeze is a lethal poison for dogs and cats. Be sure to thoroughly clean up any spills from your vehicle, and consider using products that contain propylene glycol rather than ethylene glycol.  
  8. Make sure your companion animal has a warm place to sleep, off the floor and away from all drafts. A cozy dog or cat bed with a warm blanket or pillow is perfect.
