Cold weather safety is crucial when caring for pets. Here are 10 winter pet care tips to keep pets safe in cold weather.
1. Never leave your cat or dog alone in a car during cold weather. Just like in summer, a car traps heat and in winter in traps cold. They can freeze to death in the cold and winter. Caring for your pet in winter or summer is basically using common sense.
2. Keep your cat indoors. Keeping cats indoors will prevent them from freezing outdoors, becoming lost or being stolen, injured or killed. Domestic cats are not cold weather cats.
3. Before starting your car engine, bang loudly on the car hood. Some outdoor cats seek the warmth of a car engine and sleep under the hoods of cars. This will allow the cat the chance to escape and prevent injury or death caused by the fan belt.
4. Give more food to your dog, particularly protein, if hes quite active outdoors. This will keep him and his fur in top shape.
5. Provide a warm place to sleep away from all drafts and off the floor. Cats and cold dont do well. Keep dogs warm, too. You can use a warm blanket, pillow or dog or cat bed. Or they can sleep in your bed, too!
6. Puppies are not as tolerant of cold weather as adult dogs; they are not cold weather dogs Therefore, it may be difficult to housebreak during the winter. Instead, consider paper-training him inside. If your dog is older or ill, take him outdoors only to relieve himself.
7. Antifreeze is a lethal poison for cats and dogs. Thoroughly clean up any spills, and consider using safe antifreeze, the non-lethal type containing propylene glycol rather than ethylene glycol, the lethal type, antifreeze poison.
8. Avoid shaving your dog in winter. His fur is his winter coat and will keep him warm. If you bathe your dog, ensure to dry him thoroughly before taking him out. For short-haired dogs, consider getting a coat or a sweater.
9. If your dog is out in snow or ice, thoroughly clean off his stomach, legs and paws to prevent him from licking antifreeze, salt or other harmful chemicals, and bleeding from encrusted snow or ice. You also want to prevent dog frostbite.
10. Ensure your dog wears ID tags at all times and is on leash on snow, ice or snowstorms. In these conditions, they can lose their scent and get lost. More dogs are lost during the winter than any other season.
