Preparing your pets for frigid temps

Well my Ohio Friends and Animal Lovers – as much as we wished the mild-December weather would have remained with us for the duration of the winter, it appears as if Mother Nature was in the mood to shake things up for us! loving on dogs

With that being said, extreme frigid temperatures are expected to roll into Ohio late Tuesday through early Friday – depending on where you live. Weather forecasters are calling for temperatures reaching into the -20s by the time the “deep freeze” is over.

So, what does that mean for pets? It means they will need extra care and attention this week. Dogs cannot be left out very long – even though they may want to sniff and explore. If left out too long, they will begin to shiver, whine and hold their paws up when they are cold. But, we all know they will want to head outside to do their business, so it’s important to wipe their paws when they come in — it removes any salt residue and gets their paws warmed up.

Our furry friends are going to need their “parents” this week to make sure they are kept safe and warm!

And don’t worry, after the DEEP FREEZE we will be here to help make your yard safe and happy once again!
