Safety Tips for Your Pet During Winter Storms and in Extreme Cold PDF Print E-mail

Keep your pet safe and warm during winter storms and in extreme cold weather. Do you have enough of the following items to last a few days, should the roads become unsafe for travel or the veterinary office is closed?

  • - pet food
  • - litter
  • - fresh water supply
  • - soft warm bedding
  • - any medications your pet takes on a regular basis

Outdoor pets
Some pets are better suited than others for living outdoors. There is a common misconception that dogs will be "fine" if left outside. This is not true.

All pets need adequate shelter from the elements and insulation against cold weather. Pets should not be left outside for long periods in freezing weather. Like humans, they can suffer from hypothermia and frostbite. The young and the senior pets are especially at risk. Pets with arthritis are prone to more discomfort in cold and damp environments.
