Tips to keep pets safe in cold weather

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) - As temperatures quickly drop, here are several tips and reminders from the Humane Society of the United States as to how to protect pets in cold weather.

  • Keep pets indoors and warm
  • Give pets plenty of water
  • Protect paws from salt
  • Speak out if you see a pet in the cold
  • Keep your pets with you
The Humane Society also recommends being careful with cats, wildlife and cars; warm engines in parked cars attract cats and small wildlife who might crawl up under the hood.

It also advises to avoid the potential of antifreeze poisoning, and helping neighborhood outdoor cats who might need the protection from outdoor elements as well.
