Pets and Cold Weather
Like much of the country, Colorado has been experiencing snow and frigid temperatures. Just like us some pets, like Nala the Galgo, hate cold weather. While many dogs love the snow and cold, like our friend Wolfie pictured above, it's important to make sure that we are keeping them safe when the temperatures dip. Winter also brings an increased risk of ingestion of ice-melt chemicals and antifreeze. Simple things like limiting outside time, a warm coat and booties, and washing/drying your pet's feet can help keep them happy and healthy during the winter months. Less bathing, a little more food, and a foot massage with a little petroleum jelly can help too.
Remember, if you're cold your pets are too and bring them inside!
