It’s a common question we’re asked here at the Barkery: How long can my pets be outside in the cold?
A general rule of thumb from most veterinarians: If the temperature drops below 20 degrees fahrenheit, it’s time to bring dogs and cats inside. If you have a puppy or kitten, 40 degrees is the minimum.
Thankfully, we have obtained several other tips from Pet Health Care Gazette . Among the tips:
- Watch for signs of distress when pets are outside – a warning sign
- Keep pets properly groomed so they can maintain their body heat
- Antifreeze and ice melt compounds are toxic
