You feel the nip of cold in the air and Jack Frost nipping at your nose—how do you think your pet feels?
As soon as the temperatures turn icy, snowy, the roads are thick with salt, the temperature plummets, pet owners need a reminder about efficient ways to keep their pets (especially if they go outside regularly) warm and safe during the winter months.
Here are ten tips for cold-weather animal care…
1. If it’s cold, keep pets mainly indoors
If it’s below freezing outside, your dog shouldn’t be going outside other than for short walks with you and to do their business. Maintain the rule, that if you’re cold; your pet will be cold. For potty breaks, make sure your dog has a warm, solid shelter (or wind wall) to shelter then against the harsh weather.
