[Click on image for audio] - The days are getting shorter and
the temperatures are dropping so it's time for some fall and winter
If your pet is outdoors, make sure they always have access to fresh water. If the temperature drops below freezing, you will need a heater for their water bowl. Snow is not an acceptable substitute!
If you have a long haired pet, make sure you keep them groomed and free of matts and tangles. While long hair will act as an insulator, it loses its insulating properties when it becomes matted.
If your pet has long hair on its feet or in between their pads, you may want to have your groomer cut that hair short, so it does not accumulate snow when your pet is outdoors.
If your pet gets wet in the rain or snow, dry them off with a towel when they come back inside.
