ANTIFREEZE & SALTED ROADS: If it does happen to snow this year, please be aware of the road grit on your pet’s paws. Consuming rock salt can cause dehydration, liver failure and pancreatitis, while antifreeze contains the chemical ethylene glycol, which can be lethal when ingested, causing kidney failure and death.
Look out for Cats under your cars, as the temperatures plummet Cats can find cosy warm places outside which might not be a sensible place to sleep, such as under your warm car bonnet, or under your car, so please check above your tires and bang on the hood of your car before you set off!
BE SEEN: Be safe walking your dog in the dark, as nights draw in, we want our pets to be seen! Lumitube collars are currently hot in the ‘light up collar’ market, but have a browse and see what best suits you and you dog.
