Cold Weather Pet Safety

You're already aware of the risks posed by warm weather and leaving pets in hot cars, but did you know that cold weather also poses serious threats to your pets' health?

Some tips to help keep your pets safe during cold weather

Wellness check up:  Has your pet had their preventive care exam yet? Cold weather can worsen some medical conditions such as arthritis. You should have your pet examined by a veterinarian at least once a year or more if they have health issues.

Provide proper shelter:  If your pet stays outside, provide a solid shelter. The floor of the shelter should be off the ground and the bedding should be thick and changed regularly, be sure it is dry. The opening should face away from the wind.

Feed proper nutrition: Outdoor pets require more calories in the winter to generate body heat and energy to keep warm. Make sure that they have access to fresh, not frozen water. Snow is not acceptable. Talk with your Veterinarian about your pet's nutritional needs during cold weather.

Animal Identification:
Micro Chips: They are a form of animal identification. They work by radio frequency i.d. (rfid) and are about the size of a piece of rice. It does not require batteries or maintenance. Micro Chip readers which the City has sends a signal to the chip which reads the number associated with that chip only. We scan animals that are picked up, if a micro chip is detected we will call the company associated with that chip and attempt to make contact with the owner.

PLEASE REGISTER your pets micro chip with the CHIP Company. They are available 24/7, this giving your pet a faster return home and preferred Veterinary care if needed. Please provide secondary contact information and if any of this information is changed i.e. address, phone numbers, remember to change this with the Company as well.
If you have questions about Micro Chips, give us a call or your pets Veterinarian
