Posted by wadmin on Monday, January 9, 2017


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.
