Keep your pets inside with you.
Under no circumstances should pet cats be left outdoors, even if they roam outside during other seasons. Dogs should only be taken out for walks and exercise.
If your dog is outdoors much of the day for any reason, they should be protected by a dry, draft-free shelter with a raised floor and the door covered with burlap or heavy plastic. Pets who spend a lot of time outdoors need more food in the winter because keeping warm depletes energy.
No matter what the temperature is, windchill can threaten a pet's life. Exposed skin on noses, ears and paw pads are at risk for frostbite and hypothermia during extreme cold snaps. For this reason, short-haired dogs often feel more comfortable wearing a sweater - even during short walks.
Rock salt and other chemicals used to melt snow and ice can irritate the pads of your pet's feet. Wipe all paws with a damp towel before your pet licks them and irritates their mouth.
Always wipe your pet's paws when they come in from outside. Antifreeze is a deadly poison, but it has a sweet taste that may attract animals and children. Wipe up any antifreeze spills immediately. Dogs are at particular risk of salt poisoning in winter due to the rock salt used in many areas - often when licking it from their paws after a walk.

- I probably started using the Fulton Animal Hospital soon after it opened. Dr. Delmastro was a caring veterinarian as was her staff. My animals were always treated well and on at least one occasion she came into the hospital on a non-work day to attend to my very sick dog. But we left the Fulton area in 2001 and I then realized what an important role Dr. Delmastro played in my pets' lives. Even though it is a 3-hour round trip to see her, I have continued taking my dogs to her on occasion because I know that she will diagnose the problem and see that my pet returns to good health quickly. And every time I have to do that it's like "returning home."
