Avoid Dangerous and Expensive Pet Injuries this Winter

Avoid Dangerous and Expensive Pet Injuries this Winter

 

Laura's Critter Care, LLC share tips to prevent common weather-related pet injuries.

 

Winter can be harsh on pets - especially small animals and smooth-coated breeds. Pets need special attention during the winter months.

 

Lesions on legs from stepping in snow holes, cuts on paws from walking on ice and illnesses from ingesting toxic chemicals are all typical winter-related pet-injuries. These are injuries that can be avoided if pet owners and caregivers are conscientious.

 

When possible, Laura's Critter Care, LLC urges pet owners and pet-care providers to consider the following preventive measures for maximum health and safety for their pets this winter:

 

  • Keep all young, old and short-haired pets inside. These types of pets are more vulnerable to cold weather and should not be left outside for long and without supervision.

Dog owners who are active with their pets often enjoy enhanced health benefits, including lower blood pressure and stress, thanks to the increased physical activity and time spent with their canine companions.

According to Dr. Brian Zanghi, research nutritionist at Nestlé Purina Pet Care, dogs should get an average of one hour of physical activity each day, more than twice the minimum recommended time for humans by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
