Nothing is quite like cozying up by the fire during cold weather, and animals appreciate a warm place to cuddle, too. When temperatures are below zero, all pets should be inside. Otherwise, be sure that pets have comfortable, warm shelter outdoors.
Dogs still need their walks when winter weather strikes, but hypothermia and frostbite pose a serious risk to pets during cold weather. Elderly, very young, and short-hair pups are particularly vulnerable to dropping temperatures.
