Protecting your Pet this Winter

  • Check your sidewalk for de-icer: salt and de-icer can irritate your pet’s paws
  • Wash your dog’s paws after walks: a warm water rinse will wash off salt and chemicals
  • Dog boots: Ultimate protection from the elements and help your dog retain body heat
  • Make sure your pet has a collar and a microchip with updated contact information.  A blanket of snow can make it difficult for pets to fund their way by scent.  Consider a GPS tracker on your pet’s collar so you can locate him/her with your smartphone.
  • Beware of antifreeze, coolant and other poisonous chemical spills that animals may ingest.
  • Use plastic bowls outside.  Your pet’s tongue can stick and freeze to metal.
  • Always bang on your vehicle’s hood to scare away any animals that may have been attracted to a warm engine before starting your vehicle.
