Cold Weather Pet Tips

cat_snowWe don’t even have to battle the weather outside anymore to know it’s super cold! We have all seen enough dashboard temperature gauge pictures on social media to know that it is COLD outside!

While we are busy adding layers and hoping it’s socially acceptable to sport fuzzy slippers in public, it is extremely important to keep our furry friends in mind as well during these record-low temperatures! Although they have a coat of fur that we don’t have (most of us, anyway), they still need an escape from the freezing cold weather!

Some useful tips for pet owners during the winter include the following:

1. Keep your cat indoors. Outdoors, they are liable to freeze.

2. In the winter, outdoor cats have been known to hide under the hoods of vehicles. Sadly when the car is started, the cat can be injured or even killed by the fan belt. If there are outdoor cats in your area, tap loudly on the hood of your car before you start the engine to give the cat the opportunity to escape.

3. Do not let your dog off the leash on ice or snow, especially during a snowstorm, dogs can lose their scent and easily become lost. More dogs are lost during the winter than during any other season, so make sure yours always wears ID tags.

4. Thoroughly clean off your dog’s legs and stomach when he comes in out of the ice, sleet or snow. They can ingest antifreeze, salt or other potentially hazardous chemicals while licking their paws.

5. Make sure your 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.

6. Don’t ever leave your cat or dog alone in the car during cold weather. A car can act as a refrigerator during the winter, holding in the cold and causing your pet to freeze to death.

7. Puppies do not deal with the cold temperatures as well as adult dogs, and may be difficult to housebreak during the winter. If your puppy appears to be sensitive to the weather, you may opt to paper-train him inside. If your dog is sensitive to the cold due to breed type, age or illness, take him/her outside only to relieve himself.

8. Does your furry friend spend a lot of time engaged in activities outdoors? Increase his supply of food, particularly protein, to keep him, and his coat, in the best possible shape.
