It was rather a chilly 8 degrees here this morning in sunny Cleveland so it made me think of my podcast with Dr Mahaney on winter dangers. Here are the questions we discuss:
Carrie: pancreatitis is common during the holidays due to dietary indiscretions; eating holiday decorations; stranger fear if a pet is anxious. Any other holiday dangers to watch out for?
Adrienne: How about the hidden dangers pets may encounter in a snow-covered landscape - whether at home or out hiking on a trail or in the woods. And how can you tell if your pet may be getting too cold when they are outside.
Jessica: what can you do to protect paws of dogs that refuse to wear boots?
Jessica: I have a "winter" emergency kit in my car for myself....what items should be standard for a canine kit?
Chrissy: can Dr Patrick reiterate the danger of antifreeze? It takes such a small amount to be fatal.
In his answer, Dr Mahaney mentions Musher's Secret, a dense, paw barrier made of natural wax.
