Cold Weather Pet Tips!!

The weather in South Texas is always unpredictable. We are now in the cool mornings, warm days and cold nights. It is important to remember to care for your pet during these changing temperatures. On those really cold nights, you might think about setting up a kennel in the house. This will ensure the warmest and safest place for your pet. You can also set up an ares for him in the garage with a nice warm bed and blankets. Use caution when using heaters around your pets. They can be easily excited and might knock it over. One of the cutest ways to keep your pet warm is with fun clothes and jackets. Be sure and get the best fit for your pet and be sure to take it off when it warms up. Most importantly have fun with your pet this winter.
Until next time.......Scout!!!
