Does Your Pet Need Extra Care In The Winter?
click to learn more
A few more weeks of winter!The last few leaves are falling and as the cold fronts move in, we're preparing for another Pittsburgh winter. Of course, that means that in addition to preparing to bundle ourselves up, we need to think about our pets as well.
As beautiful as the holiday season may be, the cold and many of the things we do during the holidays are also potentially dangerous for pets. With a few precautions and steps, however, you and your pet can enjoy the holiday season safely.
Here are only a few of the things pet owners should consider:
1. Consider taking your pet to a vet for a quick check-up to make sure they don't have any conditions that would put them in danger of serious illness during the winter. This is also a good time to ask about general recommendations for winter care for each individual pet, such as possible changes in diet.
2. Try to keep your pets indoors. Some owners leave their animals outside and assume they're capable of staying warm and healthy. Many pets, though, are used to living indoors more often than outdoors; others do not have fur coats that can handle the cold effectively.
3. If you do leave your animals outdoors for a significant period of time, provide them with a warm and comfortable shelter that protects them from the wind and ice. Also provide them with bedding and unfrozen water in this shelter. (Remember: consider your pet's health before letting them outside. Conditions like diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and hormonal imbalances can compromise a pet's ability to regulate her own body heat.) If you have any questions about how long your pet should be out this winter, ask your veterinarian. READ MORE
