Cold weather reminder: Make sure pets have proper shelter

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

We've finally had some cold weather this week.  It's a good time to make sure your pets have proper shelter.

Provide them with clean fresh water at all times," said Dr. Steve Whatley with Bush Animal Clinic. "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."

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.
