When it’s blowing a gale and freezing outside, our first thoughts for protecting our pets are to keep them warm but did you know about potentially lethal risks that lurk inside our own garages and driveways or a bit further afield on our local roads, pavements and puddles? We look at two common winter hazards pet owners should bear in mind.

Rabbits and guinea pigs can be housed comfortably outside all year round, however some slight changes need to be made in their daily care to ensure they stay healthy during the colder months.
In winter, the tendency is to keep our dog’s coats longer; thinking that they will be warmer. Or, to put jumpers on to keep them warm, and not just for outdoors but leaving the jumpers on inside as well (even though the majority of households will have central heating on in winter). Wearing jumpers constantly can stop a good flow of air getting through to the dog’s skin, and they can end up with skin conditions, it can also be responsible for matting the coat underneath the jumper.
