The Sheffield Staff want you to know about the up coming possible threats to pets with winter here.
Antifreeze: when you change your own radiator fluid and either leave the new can open or the old fluid in a pan, that becomes very enticing to pets. Like sweet syrup they drink it fast, which leads to kidney failure and death. Dispose of all antifeeze promptly and in safe containers. Remember also, if you have a slow leak from a car/truck over heating, the drips on the floor can be enough for a small pet to cause problems.
Cold weather below zero degress: even when the temperature is 14 degrees, the wind chill can take the temp below zero degrees. Have good shelter for outside pets, out of direct wind and water bowls that do not freeze. Sometimes even the outside pets have to come into the garage area or even the house. Make good choices.
Turkey bones: chicken or turkey bones as always are not a good choice for pets to eat as treats. These bones can splinter and cause G.I. trauma or lacerations. Some dogs digestive systems can digest these bones while others have diffiiculty, because of that risk group we recommend no dogs have these types of bones.
Chocolate: chocolate anytime of year is not good for pets, if you bake with chocolate be extra careful. Bakers chocolate is 10x more toxic then say a hershey kiss.
