With temperatures in the single digits and below, take extra care of your pets especially the young and old. Puppies can still go out for short periods of time but find ways to play with them indoors. Keep a leash on older dogs who may tend to wander especially those with hearing loss, to assure that you can get them back indoors promptly. Play in the snow can be tough on joints and ice is difficult to negotiate for dogs with coordination deficits so use caution and clear the snow and ice from play areas. Water consumption can go up during cold weather so make sure our animals have plenty of available water and maybe a little increase in hay for our large animal friends. And remember these frigid days are a good excuse curl up with your pets by the fire and read that book youve been meaning to get to!
