Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

While the weather outside is frightful, A Voice for Paws wants to share some tips to help you make sure your pets stay warm, healthy and happy in the chilly days ahead.

  • Know your pet’s limits! Some animals are more susceptible to the cold than others, so adjust the amount of time they stay outside.a voice for paws dog and cat fireplace cozy pets
  • Check the hood – cats often sleep in the wheel wells of cars during winter months to keep warm.
  • Wipe their paws! During winter walks, your dog’s paws can pick up all kinds of toxic chemicals – salt, antifreeze, or de-icers.
  • Keep them leashed! More pets become lost in the winter than any other season because snowfall can disguise recognizable scents that would normally help them find their way home.
  • Avoid the ice – not just on the roads & sidewalks, but frozen ponds & lakes, too!
  • Leave them home! Just as hot cars are dangerous for pets in the summer, cold cars pose a threat as well!
  • Be seen! With Daylight Savings making it darker earlier, keep yourself and your pet by wearing reflective gear.
  • Give them shelter! Ideally, all pets should live inside, but if your pets live outdoors primarily, bring them indoors during sub-zero temperatures and give them more food to replace energy lost from trying to stay warm.
  • Be prepared! Winter brings extreme weather that can cause power outages. Have an emergency plan and make sure they include your pets.
  • Be careful with decorations. Many shiny new decorations look like fun new toys to your pets – especially glass ornament balls and tinsel!
