With some areas of the area projected to reach an unbelievable -34 degree windchill today (Monday) , it’s incredibly important to keep your animals safe and warm!
Here are some tips shared this weekend from the Missouri Humane Society.
–Cats need to stay indoors; no exceptions.
–Dogs should ONLY be let outdoors long enough to relieve themselves. If they don’t go after a couple minutes, take them back inside, warm up their paws with your hands or a towel, then try again.
–Doggie coats and booties aren’t just a fashion statement, they can be hugely important in keeping your animal warm; fur can only insulate so much and paw pads (along with ears and tails) are easily susceptible to frostbite.
–If you feel guilty about your pet missing out on their usual exercise regimen, there are plenty of ways for them to stay active indoors. puzzle toys, treat-dispensing toys, or tricks-for-treats are great ways to keep your animal busy (and warm) on bitter cold days.
