Tips For Keeping Pets Safe In Winter

Play associated audio

PETA is urging pet owners to take special precautions during the wintery weather.

PETA says every year they receive complaints about people who leave dogs or cats outside in the cold. Peta reminds us that although our dogs and other animals are equipped with fur coats, they can still suffer from frostbite and exposure, and they can become dehydrated when water sources freeze.

Peta says keep animals inside during harsh weather conditions. Don't allow your pet to roam freely outdoors.

Peta also says when you bring your dog or cat in from the cold, wipe off his or her paws, legs and stomach because salt and other chemicals can make your pets sick if they ingest them.
