- … salt products used to melt ice can be very irritating to delicate paws and some are even toxic? Use pet-friendly ice melting products for your sidewalks and driveway and be sure to wipe your pet’s tootsies and underside when they come in after a walk.
- … anti-freeze is lethal to pets even in tiny amounts? This sweet tasting liquid causes rapid kidney failures. Notify neighbors if you notice a leak in their driveway and use a pet-safe alternative for your own vehicles.
- … many a chilly kitty has taken refuge on a warm engine block. If you do not park in a garage, bang on the hood of your car to scare off any stowaways before starting your engine to avoid an unwitting animal becoming injured under your hood.
- … pets can get frostbitten too! While many do sport a warm, furry coat, they should not spend a substantial amount of time outdoors in subzero temperatures without shelter. Thinner coated pets might benefit from a warm coat and/or booties as well.
- … very young or elderly animals may not tolerate the chilly weather as well others? Use common sense when taking these animals outdoors this winter.
- … cats should be kept inside whenever possible in the winter? The dangers of being outdoor increase substantially for kitties when the temperatures plunge.
- … dogs can lose their scent in the snow? A dog that panics off leash in a snow storm may not be able to find it’s way home like it would normally. Keep your dog leashed.
