Winter is upon us!
Dr. Bardutz and staff would like to extend a quick reminder that the cold can be dangerous for pets too. Even with all that fur to protect them, as the temperatures drop, be sure to monitor the amount of time that your pets spend outdoors, in order to avoid conditions such as frostbite and hypothermia. Additionally, outdoor pets should always be provided with a warm, dry place where they can take shelter from the elements, such as an insulated dog house.
If you suspect that an animal does not have adequate shelter, is stray, or suffering from any injury related to the cold weather, you can contact Animal Protection Services, 7 days a week from 9am – 5pm at 306-777-7700 or for after-hours emergencies, contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500.
If you have any questions or concerns about your own pet, please contact the clinic at 306-721-1022, and stay safe and warm for winter!
