The Humane Society of Utah reminds pet owners that winter weather poses potential danger to pets, even those with fur coats.
Cats and dogs that spend time outdoors should be provided with a well-insulated shelter and dry bedding that can be easily replaced. Old and young pets or those with short hair should not be kept outdoors. Livestock should be provided with a windbreak, and rabbit owners are urged to put hay in the cages.Antifreeze is extremely attractive to pets but is highly poisonous. All spills should be thoroughly and immediately wiped up.
For more information on cold-weather pet care, call the society at 968-3548 or visit the shelter at 4613 S. 4000 West.
