Dog running through winter field

Are you ready for Winter?

Winter is the season for cold icy weather, dark evening strolls, crunching in the snow and brisk frosty walks. These things may be typical signs that winter is with us, but they also indicate several seasonal dangers to our dogs. Going out in the cold is all about being prepared, not only in what we wear, but also in knowing what dangers could lie ahead and how to avoid them.

With winter approaching and potential challenges like snow and ice, it’s essential to consider the well-being of both humans and our furry family members. They might have a fur coat, but cats and dogs can still be vulnerable to colder weather.

We’ve teamed up with our vet care provide FirstVet to provide you with winter safety tips to ensure you and your dog will be happy while walking in a winter wonderland.
