How To Keep Pets Safe In the Cold

Here in Alpena we’ve been experiencing freezing cold temperatures and negative wind chills. This weather is chilling our bones, but imagine how it’s making our pets feel? Many pet owners think their pets are safe from the cold especially with their big coats of fur, but with temperatures hitting below freezing pets are still at risk!

Take into consideration how dangerous it is for your pets to be outside, small dogs can even get hypothermia and frostbite on their little paws. Simple ways to prevent your animals from frostbite is to wipe the salt off their feet, and consider using products that protect your pets paws. A good rule of thumb is if it’s too cold outside for you, it’s probably too cold for your pets.
