Pet Winter Safety Tips.
With a little common sense and attention to detail, owners can help pets stay out of harm's way all winter long. The chill of winter and the bustle of the holiday season are upon us. Although it's easy to get distracted by party preparations and gift giving, we need to remember to look after our pets' needs, too. Nine tips for keeping pets safe this winter

A season of giving.

Giving a pet as a gift is seldom a good idea. Instead, give loved ones a gift certificate so they can make a thoughtful, responsible decision after the holidays.

It's the most wonderful time.

Crowds and changes in routines can upset pets and increase their chance of getting lost. Make sure pets are micro chipped and wear a collar and tags at all times. Create a quiet place where pets can escape the chaos of holiday celebrations.

The return of the fruitcake.

The No. 1 problem veterinarians see during the holidays is pets sick from ingesting food they shouldn't have eaten. Keep pets away from holiday food and ask guests not to slip them table scraps. Clear kitchen counters and secure trash cans so pets cannot get into anything dangerous.

Deck the halls.

Holiday decorations can pose serious hazards to curious pets. To prevent accidents, anchor the Christmas tree on a flat surface. Cover the tree stand so pets cannot drink stagnant water. Rub electrical cords with powerful taste deterrents to prevent chewing. Rub fresh lemon peel on the base of the tree to discourage cats from climbing. Hang wooden or cloth ornaments that can be fastened with ribbons. Keep potentially toxic poinsettias, mistletoe and holly berries out of pets' reach. Always supervise animals around fireplaces and space heaters. Extinguish all candles when leaving the room.

To Grandmother's house we go.

Think it through before packing up Fido or Fluffy to visit out of town relatives. Depending on their age, temperament and experience, some pets may be happier staying home with a pet sitter or staying in a boarding kennel.

Walking in a winter wonderland.

Keep dogs fit with frequent walks and play sessions, but don't keep them out long if it's too cold, wet or windy. Most pets are less active in the winter, so it's important to adjust food portions accordingly. However, pets that spend a significant amount of time outdoors burn more calories keeping warm, so they may need extra food.

Check the engine.

Pets and wildlife often curl up for warmth under car hoods, so take a quick glance before starting up the car. And remember, antifreeze is tasty but highly toxic to pets.

Baby, it's cold outside.

If dogs live outdoors all year long, they should have access to fresh water and a draft free doghouse that's raised off the ground and covered with a waterproof flap. Houses should be small enough to warm with body heat, but large enough for that animal to stand and turn around. Make sure bedding is always clean and dry and that the water bowl does not ice over.

Prepare for potential emergencies and keep important phone numbers such as an animal poison control hotline close at hand.(785-532-5679)
