5 Tips for Keeping Your Dog Safe During WinterJan 21, 2015
1. Turn up the heat. Never leave your dog outside for too long or inside a cold car without heat. 2. Don‚Äôt forget the leash. This will help prevent your pet from running onto an unfrozen lake or getting injured by sliding down a steep hill. 3. Store anti-freeze safely. Make sure toxic chemicals like anti-freeze are out of reach; it tastes sweet and dogs may lick it if they come in contact. 4. Keep away from snow machinery. Dogs are unaware of the dangers of snow plows and other machinery and could easily get injured. 5. Dog-proof your home. Make sure fireplaces have screens and that portable heaters are out of reach and unable to burn pets.
