As temperatures drop, pet owners need to increase their cold-weather smarts! The East Bay SPCA would like to remind pet guardians to practice its cold weather pet tips to help keep animals warm and dry!
East Bay SPCA Veterinarian Dr. Gwen Gadd says, Our furry family members are not that different from us. If you feel your joints act up during cold or rainy weather, your pet is probably feeling the same way. During the rainy season, take the same precautions for Fluffy or Fido as you would for a beloved human family member. They deserve it.
1. Make sure your pet is dry. Whether coming in from the rain after a potty break, or just after a bath, be sure to thoroughly dry your animal. Wet paws can lead to matting of the hair around the feet, and wet pets can get the chills!
