What To Do for Our Pets in Extreme Weather


ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Freezing temperatures can be dangerous for our furry friends, but there are several ways to make sure our pets stay healthy in the winter.

Veterinarians say taking our dogs for a long walk when temperatures dip this low probably isn't a good idea; the less time they're exposed to the elements the better. Some experts even suggest getting coats or sweaters for your animals. If pets are outside, don't forget their water can freeze, in extreme weather, the best advice is to keep our furry friends inside.
