Reminder to keep pets safe and warm this winter
(WJBK) - The freezing temperatures aren't going anywhere anytime soon, and these conditions are just as dangerous to pets as they are to people.
Kristina Rinaldi and Danielle Zuccaro from Detroit Dog Rescue joined us on The Nine to talk about how to keep your pets safe and warm this time of year.
Dogs should not be outside for more than 25 minutes in temperatures below 35 degrees.
Take care to wipe off dog paws and to keep them free of ice and salt when they come back indoors.
Spreading a little vaseline on your dog's paws can protect them from cracking and bleeding.
And, lastly, feed your dog a few extra calories and protein in this frigid weather.
