- Frostbite – Along with the cold comes the potential for your pet to get frostbite. Try to avoid keeping your pet outdoors when there is snow and ice on the ground or when temperatures are very low. Your pets paws, ears and the tip of the tail are all susceptible to frostbite. Signs include blisters and firm, waxy skin. To help prevent the chance of frostbite, use booties, hats and other pet related clothing apparel during walks or when playing in the yard, to keep your pet warm and safe.
- Antifreeze – Winter is when most antifreeze leaks occur from car radiators and if your pet licks the leak, it can be deadly. Remember to keep all pets away from your garage or driveway and if you notice a leak or spill be sure to clean it immediately.
- Snow & Salt – With Winter comes snow and to melt the snow many use salt on sidewalks and roadways. The salt used can be harmful to your pets paws so be sure to survey the area before taking him/her on a walk. You may also want to consider booties to keep your pet warm and comfortable.
