Winter pet care for cats and dogs

Its cold outside! Winter pet care tips

dogs and cats are walking through the substances left by gritters trying to clear roads and car drivers defrosting their windscreens and then licking them off their paws.Consuming rock salt can cause dehydration, liver failure and pancreatitis, while antifreeze contains the chemical ethylene glycol, which can be lethal when ingested The symptoms of ingesting anti-freeze include vomiting, seizures, appearing sleepy and a heightened breathing rate.Symptoms of consuming rock salt - which contains the same ingredient as table salt, sodium chloride, but also has harmful chemicals such as magnesium - include burns to the mouth and throat and excessive salivating and drinking.

Please check your car engines for cats as they like to curl up in a nice warm engine and fall asleep.

Wrap up on walks Remove Ice and snow from between paws Wash feet to remove grit or ice clean any split antifreeze from the ground Adjust their food if exercise levels drop make them visible when walking in the dark nights. Do not let your pet play on frozen rivers or lakes.
