Ridgefield Animal Control offers reminder about pets and cold weather safety

As bitter cold sets in, Ridgefield Police are asking residents to keep in mind that not all dogs are comfortable or safe out in these temperatures.  Variables such as the dog's coat type, weight, age, and health are all factors to consider before letting your dog outside.  Once temperatures drop under 20°, all owners need to be aware that their dogs could potentially develop cold-associated health problems like hypothermia and frostbite.  If the dog is shivering, acting anxious, whining, slowing down, searching out warm locations or holding up one or more paws, Ridgefield's Animal Control Officer says it’s time to head inside.
