Area veterinarians are reminding you to keep an eye on your pets during this cold snap. Dr. David Calland says you should limit your dog’s exposure to the cold conditions. He adds that a dog’s tolerance to cold varies depending on things like breed and type of hair.

Calland says you shouldn’t put lotion or moisturizer on your dog’s feet to keep their pads from drying out. That actually transfers cold to their feet faster.
