The gang at PetsWelcome is preparing for winter and that means we are pulling out our long sleeve shirts, coats, and putting away all the summer and fall clothing. Our pets are also noticing the temperature changes and have been snuggling a little closer to us.

Every season brings with it fun places to travel and activities to do with our pets, but it also brings about new things to be aware of such as chemicals that are harmful to our pets, weather changes that can be harsh on them, and decorations and plants that could be dangerous.

We love our pets and know you do too. As we all prepare for winter weather and frosty mornings, keep the following tips in mind:

  1. Not all dogs are fluffy enough for cold weather, invest in a coat
  2. Dry those paws when coming back from being out and about
  3. Don’t forget to brush your pets and keep those nails trimmed
  4. Move pet beds away from drafty areas of the house
  5. Chemicals used to de-ice the sidewalks are often poisonous to pets, invest in non-toxic brands
  6. Winterize chemicals for our vehicles are poisonous to pets, keep them out of reach and wipe up any spills
  7. Limit outdoor play times and walks
  8. Never, ever, ever leave your pet in a car during winter

    Dogs require very special care in cold weather. I think it is necessary to mention that young puppies should never be left outside when it’s very cold because they are not able to make themselves warm like older dogs can. Keeping them safe and cozy inside a heated building is therefore the best idea.
