Brr, It’s Cold Outside!
Do you have enough of the following items to last a few days, if you cannot make it in to our office or if we’re closed?
- pet food
- fresh water supply
- soft warm bedding
- any medications your pet takes on a regular basis
Some pets are better suited than others for living outdoors. There is a common misconception that dogs and cats will be “fine” if left outside.
If your pet is prone to chewing, do not use blankets or material that can be ingested. Cedar shavings can be irritating to the skin, so use with caution depending on your pet’s hair coat.
Check your pet’s accommodations daily to ensure that the interior is dry and protected from the elements.
Caution – do not use a heat lamp, space heater, or other device not approved for use with animals.
