Keeping your pet safe from the cold
If you live in an area where winters are often bitter, cold and snowy, it's important that you make pet safety a top priority. The extra care that you provide for your beloved pets can help keep them safe and healthy during the winter season.
Protecting against cold weather
If the air is so cold that it is uncomfortable for you to be outside, then your pets shouldn't be left without shelter either. Keep pets indoors during the winter season and just do daily walks instead. If you cannot bring animals indoors, create a wind proof and waterproof shelter and make sure to keep clean and dry bedding inside.
Another way to help keep animals warm is to dress them in sweaters and jackets. Some pet owners might find the idea of animal clothing to be unnecessary, but an extra layer can actually help keep pets warm and prevent them from shivering during your daily walks.
Protecting against chemicals
The chemicals found in antifreeze and road salt can be very dangerous to animals during the winter. Keep your pets safe by storing products out of the reach of animals and look for products that contain propylene glycol rather than ethylene glycol, which is considerably less toxic. Road salt can also be irritating to animals, so be sure to wipe off paws after walks.
Protecting against dehydration
Animals use more energy in colder weather and may need more food and water. Check your pets' water dishes frequently to ensure that the water is never frozen. You might also consider boosting your pets' supply of nutrient dense Wysong foods
if they spend time outdoors each day.
Pet safety is important all-year round, but it is essential that you take extra care of your pets during the winter months. Keep your pets out of the cold and away from toxic chemicals this winter season for healthier, happier pets.
