Ten Tips 'Til The Holiday: Freezing Temps

Ten Tips 'Til The Holiday: Freezing Temps

Never force a pet to spend time outside in the winter. Just because a pet has a fur coat, does not mean that their bodies or hair can handle the cold. Many pets love the winter and have thick appropriate coats, but little, short-haired dogs or cats can get frostbitten quickly. Keep the fur between their toe pads clipped down to prevent mini snowballs or icicles from forming between their little toes and consider coating their dry paw patches with a paw de-icer spray or balm. Make sure to take extra care to toast up a pet after outdoor adventures in the freezing weather – keep a pan or washcloth ready with warm water to rinse paws and plenty of towels for drying and cleaning off, too!

I know, I always feel so bad for any animal that has to be outdoors in these freezing temperatures. My kitties are indoor cats so they stay nice and warm inside!

this is such a good idea; I always feel sorry for the dogs who are out with these paws freezing!

B-Bop doesn't even like going outside now and it's at the COLDEST like 40. He runs outside does his business and jams back in. No sniffing around or checking things out
