Snow is rare in Victoria, but we do get our share of cold weather.
Even when daytime temperatures are moderate, nighttime temperatures can drop below freezing. Here are seven important tips to safeguard your pets from cold weather hazards.
1. Keep dogs and cats inside. Don't leave your pet outside in the cold for long periods of time. Wind chill makes days colder than actual temperature readings. Bringing pets in during the night and leaving them out during the day is not an option. Extreme temperature changes can increase the risk of infectious diseases.
2. Shelter for your dog. Even long-haired breeds need protection from extreme cold. If your pet is not allowed in the house proper, consider creating an area for it in a corner of the garage or tool shed. Your pet still needs warm blankets, straw or other bedding to snuggle into and stay dry and safe from the cold.
3. Fresh water. You should be sure your pet has a supply of fresh water that is not frozen. Check its water bowl often.
