We've finally had some cold weather this week.
It's a good time to make sure your pets have proper shelter.
Veterinarians say it's best to bring your pets inside. If you can't, then make sure to give them good shelter to protect them from the wind. And of course, make sure to check they have plenty of water to drink.
“Provide them with clean fresh water at all times. We forget sometimes, we get up in the morning and leave, and go to work and realize on my dog's water bowl maybe frozen and they can't really have access to water,” says Dr. Steve Whatley, with Bush Animal Clinic.
