Some owners will eave their animals outside for extended periods of time, thinking that all animals are adapted to live outdoors. This can put their pets in danger of serious illness. There are things you can do to keep your animal warm and safe. 1. Provide fresh food and clean water to your pet every day. 2. Keep your cats indoors during the winter. Not only can outdoor cats freeze, they sometimes sleep under the hoods of cars to stay warm. Honk or bang loudly on the car hood before starting your car. 3. If you have a short-haired breed of dog, consider getting him/her a sweater with a high collar or turtleneck with coverage from the base of the tail to the belly to keep them warm. 4. Dogs and cats are attracted to the sweet smell and taste of antifreeze which contains ethylene glycol. A tiny lick can kill your dog or cats so make sure to check your car for leaks on your driveway or gutter. Keep containers tightly closed and clean up spills immediately. 5. Rat and mouse poisons are commonly used during the winter months. Please them out of reach as they can cause fatal bleeding or kidney failure in your pet. Keep telephone numbers of your veterinarian and a local emergency veterinary service in a convenient location.
