 walking dog cold

 

The cold weather is upon us.  Here are some tips to help protect your pets this winter.

  • Make sure your pet always has fresh water.  Remember, when it is cold out it doesn’t take long for it to freeze.
  • Your outdoor pet needs an appropriate shelter to protect them from the winter elements. 
  • Bedding is also important, make sure pet can get up off wet/cold ground
  • You can also take a bottle (empty 2 liter pop bottle) and fill with warm water, you can wrap in a towel to ensure that you do not burn your pet.
  • Keep an eye on your dogs feet, salt can irritate your pets pads and possibly crack, also check feet for ice/snow balls that can form from walking through snow.  Also watch for any injuries from walking on the frozen ground.

Cats like to find warm places during the cold months, use caution when starting your recently driven vehicles since cats can climb up near the motor for the warmth.

 

 



 

***ATTENTION NEW PET OWNERS:***

If you get a new pet we recommend getting them checked by a Veterinarian, within a few days of aquiring them.  During this visit we can access the pets vaccination history, and determine when he/she is due for their next vaccinatons.

Puppies should get vaccines at 6 to 8 weeks of age and then each 3 to 4 weeks until 16 to 18 weeks of age for a series of 3 to 4 vaccinations.

Kittens should get vaccines at 6 to 8 weeks of age and then boostered 3 to 4 weeks later. 

Also if you get an adult animal and you are unsure of its vaccination history we recommend getting it vaccinated.
