The winter months can be hard on your pets. It’s very important that you always take action to protect your pets against the elements. During the winter months, pets should be kept inside and warm.
Outdoor cats could potentially get caught in harsh weather, and a sudden temperature drop could be life-threatening to a dog. Dogs that stay outside need to be given proper shelter, a sudden hail storm or similar activity could injure an outdoor dog. Animals also need to have a lot of water throughout the winter season, as the winter weather can quickly dehydrate them.
When walking your dog, remember that salt can harm their feet. Look out for salt patches or put a balm on their paws before walking them. Call the local humane society or rescue in your area if you see any dogs or cats outdoors during harsh weather. They can help.
If you’re concerned about your pet’s continued health and safety, you may want to consider inquiring about pet insurance. Contact Accurate Insurance Inc. of Spokane, Washington to get a quote today!
