Pet Winter Weather Care

Even with fur coats, pets need to be protected from the cold.  Exposure to harsh conditions can cause serious illness or death to animals, particularly during periods of freezing rain and rapid tempature fluctuations.
Ontarios law require that animals receive adequate shelter and care.  Willful failure to do so could lead to prosecution and fine, jail sentence or prohibition from owning animals.
Here are some tips to follow to keep your pets safe during the winter months:
  • NEVER LEAVE YOUR PET ALONE IN A COLD CAR. Cars retain cold temperatures, acting like refrigerators, which can cause your pet to freeze to death.
  • KEEP YOUR PETS WARM. If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet. Although some breeds can withstand colder temperatures, it is important to supply adequate housing. View our Ideal Doghouse brochure.
  • KEEP ANIMALS AWAY FROM PUDDLES. They may contain ethylene glycol found in antifreeze which can be fatal if ingested.
  • KEEP YOUR PETS AWAY FROM BODIES OF WATER. With melting ice and rising water levels, lakes, ponds, and rivers can be extremely dangerous for you and your pet.
  • WIPE YOUR PET’S PAWS AND TUMMY. Salt and ice melt can irritate and burn, and also be fatal if ingested.
  • ANIMALS SEEK WARMTH UNDER VEHICLE HOODS. Try knocking on the hood of your car to scare them away before starting the engine.
  • A WARM PLACE TO SLEEP. Ensure your pet has a thick and, cozy bed or blanket, located off the cold floor and away from drafts.
  • DRESS FOR THE WEATHER. Use pet booties and winter sweaters designed for animals to help keep your pets warm during outdoor excursions.
  • PREPARE AN EMERGENCY PET SURVIVAL KIT. You never know when a storm might prevent you from being able to leave the house for extended periods. Having an emergency pet survival kit could save a life.
