Winter harsh on pets as well

The Butte-Silver Bow Animal Services Department would like to remind residents that it is important to think of your pets during this season and to keep them safe and comfortable.

When the temperature drops, be sure to get your pets inside where they can be warm and out of the elements. Take them out for short bathroom breaks, but do not leave them out for extended periods of time. The low temperature exposure can lead to hypothermia and other medical problems.

If the weather is cool out and dogs must be outside, ensure they have a warm insulated dog house, fresh unfrozen water and additional food to help keep their body temperature up. Also, when pets come inside, be sure to wipe off their paws as they can carry toxic ice melt in and ingest it as they lick their paws clean.

Furthermore, never leave a pet in the car in the cold temperatures. The car acts as a refrigerator and can be a serious risk to your pet’s health. Last, if you have an older, ill, or young pet, a coat may be imperative as many of these pets cannot regulate their body temperature.

For any questions, call 406-497-6525.
