Once the thermometer starts to hover around the frigid temperatures like it has been, people need to take precautions not only for themselves, but also for their pets.
u Thoroughly wipe down your dog when he comes back in the house after being outside. It is common for dogs to ingest salts for melting ice as well as antifreeze, which can be very toxic.
v Similar to how you should never leave your dog unattended in the car during summer, the same goes for winter. The vehicle can act almost like a freezer.
w Fresh water is a must at all times, as your dog may be more likely to lick ice and eat snow if she's thirsty from lack of water.
