  • Keep your pet warm. If you are taking them outdoors wrap them up in a little coat, or reduce the time that you spend outdoors in the frost and snow.
  • When animals are cold they seek shelter so check in sheds, garages, and underneath your car before you drive off!
  • Don’t let your pet drink from puddles – antifreeze which is regularly used in the winter is toxic and your pet could ingests some by mistake.
  • Try to keep you pet indoors as much as possible and away from any roads. Traffic accidents increase in winter and your pet could be more at risk.

The winter is well and truely upon us. Follow these tips to keep your pet safe and make sure that they are microchipped just incase they get out and get lost on a dark night. For more information on pet care or micro chipping in Ballymena contact Grove Vets on 028 2565 6023
