Winter Care for Pets

Sunday, January 15, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Our pets need the same things that we need during the winter months.  Shelter from the elements, a warm, dry bed,  Some extra food if they spent lots of time playing outdoors and plenty of fresh, clean water.  In the winter, it’s especially important to keep your dog clean and well brushed.  This will help maintain the natural, insulating properties of their coat. If he gets wet in the freezing rain or snow, dry him off with fluffy towels or a bow dryer. Be sure t0 clean and dry his paws each time they are exposed to rock salt or deicing chemicals. When it’s cold, keep your cat indoors as much as possible.  If you do let him out, check under the hood before you start your car to make sure that he hasn’t curled up in to stay warm.

Remember, your pets count.
