Keep Your Pet Safe from the Winter Elements

Published on February 10, 2014 under Pet Ownership

You know it’s cold outside–and sometimes windy, which makes it worse for pets as well as people. A fur coat alone is not enough. If it’s too cold for you to stay out, it’s too cold for your pet (Some huskies, malamutes and similar breeds are the exception, but only if they have been conditioned to the cold over time and have enough food and water). Straw/hay bedding is available at the Laramie Animal Shelter. Check your pet’s water often–It’s no good frozen!
