With the first arctic cold blast of the winter hitting the area this week, pet owners are being warned to shield their dogs from the bitter temperatures outside. Dr. Jordan Kobilca of the Luxemburg Pet Clinic and Door County Animal Hospital says dogs should only be let outside for a brief time.
Dr. Kobilca also advises checking your pet’s feet and stomach to remove any ice, salt, and chemicals. He also says you should check for cracks in paw pads or redness between the toes as well. You can find winter care tips for your dog with this story below.
