How to Keep Outdoor Pets Warm This Winter

December 17, 2019 | Blog

Keeping pets warmKeeping pets warm in winter should always be at the top of your seasonal to-do list. To get you started, we’ve compiled a few of our favorite techniques that will help them stay toasty and safe during the colder months of the year:

Keep Your Thermostat Set During the Day

Even though your pet may have fur or feathers, they’re typically comfortable in the same temperatures as you are. However, they do you have a wider acceptable range of temperatures, so if you set your thermostat anywhere between 60 and 70 degrees while you’re gone, your pets will be fine.

Set Up an Outdoor Shelter

If your dog or cat tends to spend a lot of time outside, be sure to set up a shelter so that they won’t get too cold when the temperature drops. Plus, use a feeding station to make sure they don’t get too hungry while they’re out there.

Pick Up a Dog Sweater and Booties

Everyone knows that dogs look absolutely adorable in a sweater, but they also keep those without a lot of fur quite warm on chilly nights. Plus, to protect your pet from ice collecting on their paws, you may want to think about using some booties as well.

Give Outdoor Animals Extra Food

If you have an animal that mostly stays outside, you should definitely consider giving them a little extra food during each meal. This is because in order to stay warm, their bodies are going to be burning more food for energy and even a small amount more will help.

Be Careful with De-Icing Chemicals

De-icing chemicals such as antifreeze can work wonders, but if you have pets, you should be aware that their sweet taste makes these toxic substances attractive to them. Be sure that the containers are out of their reach, and if you experience a spill, clean it up right away.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
