Winter Planning

Pets get cold too!  Be sure to provide a warm dog house with some blankets that your pet can snuggle into for the cold months. Better yet, you can designate a specific area in the house for your outside pet to spend the cold nights in the same warmth you enjoy.
Cats sometimes search for warmth under the hood of a car! Try honking your horn a few times before starting the car.

Grooming is still important during the winter. Fall leaves can lead to lots of matting in your pet’s fur. Daily brushing will help decrease the chance for mats.

Mushroom season! Some mushrooms are toxic to pets. Don’t let your pets eat mushrooms during their daily walks.

Snake season! Watch your hunting dogs. Immediately take your pet to their vet if you notice any punture wounds or swelling. Ask us about our rattlesnake vaccination.

Many pets can suffer from dry skin because of low humidity in the air. You can use a humidifier in your house to add moisture to the air and help prevent dry, flaky, and itchy skin.
