Cold Weather Tips for Your Dog

•  As the weather gets colder, you may need to make preparation to keep your pet warm as well as yourself. If you plan to leave your pet outside during the winter, begin as soon as the weather begins to cool so they can grow accustomed to the lower temperatures slowly.

•  Pets need to physically adjust to the colder temperatures by growing a thicker coat and building up a resistance to the lower temperatures.

•  Make sure your pet has adequate shelter. An insulated doghouse with cedar chips or blankets on the floor will help keep your pet warm.

•  Don't use metal bowls outside during the winter. Your pet's tongue may accidentally stick to the bowl.

•  Pets not staying outside still need special consideration. Pets that normally sleep on a brick, tile, or concrete floor should have a mat or bed to protect them from the cold floor.

•  Consider a sweater for your dog if he/she is thin or a shorthair breed.

•  Make sure older pets don't sleep in drafty areas for they are more prone to colds and other ailments.

•  Older dogs should be walked in areas where snow and ice have been cleared away to avoid injuries.

•  Make sure your pet has plenty of food and water. If your pet doesn't have a weight problem, give them extra food and treats to keep them warm.

•  If your pet walks on sanded or salted roads, clean their paws frequently. Salt in particular can burn and irritate the paws. Clean fur helps to insulate your pet better.

•  Do not leave your pet in the car when traveling. A car can cool down quickly and cause health problems.

•  Make sure antifreeze is kept away from your pet. Pets like the taste of antifreeze, but it is extremely toxic to pets.

•  Don't put your dog in the back of a pickup truck when it is cold to avoid frostbite.

•  Finally, if it is frigid outside make sure your pets are indoors.

Our Christian sympathies are extended to
the family of

Emily Kristin Jackson

February 20, 1990 — March 21, 2013

Emily loved all animals. Her family designated the
Linn County Humane Society as recipient of memorials
in her name.

God's blessings and strength to you.

Pictured are Randy Head, shelter manager, Michelle Brosemer, Board President and LaDonna and Keith Jackson. Emily's name is inscribed on our memorial plaque.

Several people have approached members of the Board with possible cases of neglect or abuse of animals. These situations fall under the jurisdiction of local police departments. If in an incorporated area, they have an animal control officer, or the county sheriff if outside city limits. The Humane Society has no authority or jurisdiction in this type of situation. The closest SPCA is in St. Louis and it is doubtful they could make a timely intervention from there, so speak with the animal control officer - that's their job and they will evaluate and take necessary steps to correct the problem.
