During the extremely cold temperatures, it’s possible for your pet to rapidly develop frostbite or hypothermia. Animals with short fur, are small or may be geriatric are at greater risk. Try to keep time spent outside to a minimum during the frigid temperatures, and try using coats or booties to keep them warm! Antifreeze can leak from your car radiator onto your driveway, and unfortunately, animals are attracted to its sweet taste and smell. This chemical is absorbed very rapidly once it’s ingested, and it can cause permanent kidney damage. Most ice melts contain large amounts of sodium salts, and some ice melts can cause damage to paw pads when stepped on. These can get stuck in the paws VACATION TIME?

Winter is also the time of year when little unwanted critters tend to find their way into our homes to stay warm. For this reason, rodent poisons are more commonly used during the colder months and can cause greater risk for your pets. Always keep packaging from mouse or rat killers in the event your pet ingests them. This will help your veterinarian or Pet Poison Control to quickly identify the toxin and determine the specific treatments for your animal. Common complications from the ingestion of rodent poison are internal bleeding, brain swelling and kidney failure. When placing rodent poisons, please put them in places where your pet doesn’t have access to them! If you think your pet has ingested anything toxic, please contact ASPCA Poison Control at (888) 426-4435 or call your local veterinarian. Please email with any questions.
