Well it’s been a very cold month in Saskatchewan- a record low month! on February 6, 2019 Saskatoon broke the 112 year-old record for the coldest day, when the temperature fell to -42.6 C, according to Environment Canada. The previous record for Feb.6 was set in 1907 at -41.7 C. We sure felt it…and so do our pets. Our pets’ cold tolerance depends on various factors, from their activity level, to their weight, health, and fat stores. It is very important to give your pet a warm place to sleep when the temperatures get this cold. Cats and dogs are just as susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia as humans are, and should be kept indoors or in a warm place if the weather drops to threatening temps. You may want to shorten their outdoor activity also or consider a dog sweater/jacket if they do insist on the outdoors. Here’s an image of our Fur-Baby all bundled and warm:) He’s such a charmer.
“Hi, I’m Jack!”
“Please Keep your Fur-Babies warm! Our feet and ears get cold quickly, just like yours do, so make sure our play time outdoors is shorter than usual!”
