The following are some cold weather tips to help keep your pets safe and comfortable:
*Provide a dry covered area that is protected from rain, wind, and snow.
*Provide a dog bed, blankets or cedar shavings in the covered area for your pet to sleep on.
*Ensure your pet has plenty of fresh water and food. Lukewarm water will help keep the water from freezing.
*Consider bringing your outdoor pets indoors when harsh weather hits.
*Your dog can lose their scent in the snow and become lost. Keep your dog on a leash and ensure your pets are licensed and microchipped.
*Cats often seek shelter under car hoods. Bang loudly on the hood of your car or honk the horn before starting the engine.
*After walking or playing in snow, wipe off your pet's paws so the snow and ice does not irritate their feet.
