Brrr it’s cold out there! After the newest winter storm and all that freezing rain, it is important to keep your pet safe in these colder temperatures. Here are a few tips to make sure you can keep your best friend safe for the rest of this winter.

  • Forgo pet haircuts. Because longer coats give dogs more insulation, the ASPCA advises against shaving your dog in the winter. If you have a short-haired pup, consider having him sport a winter coat or sweater with a high collar or turtleneck in cold weather.
