Labrador Rescue Kent and Borders issues advice to owners

With the weather forecasts hinting at snow, Labrador Rescue Kent and Borders (LRK) offers some tips to keep your pet in tip top shape during the cold weather.

Check your dogs paws and ears as they can get frostbite, also paws can be irritated by the salt and grit put down on roads and paths.

Keep your pets away from antifreeze, as it can be fatal causing kidney damage if drunk. Cats and dogs are drawn to it because of its sweet taste.

Like humans dogs and cats who suffer from arthritis find the cold weather aggravates it, so keep your pet warm, even give them a heat pad to help ease the pain.

Dogs with short hair can feel the cold. They are OK when exercising but if you are out and standing still a lot with your dog, do consider getting your pet a coat, and one that is highly visible

“Some people get caught out”, warns Maggie Hinks, LRK trustee, ”You need to think about your pet, check your dog as you would your child, making sure they do not touch chemicals, get frostbite and are warm enough.”
