The Danger Is Real: Antifreeze Poisoning in Pets

poisoning inpetsWinter is in full effect, and pet owners are taking precautions to protect their pets from the elements. Keeping pets indoors and warm, putting on protective coats and sweaters, and keeping winter grooming in mind are all important, but for many of us, antifreeze poisoning in pets isn’t as big of a concern as it should be.

Here in Brooklyn, where many people rely solely on public transportation, the dangers of antifreeze poisoning in pets may not seem urgent. However, pets can be exposed to antifreeze, whether or not you own a car, so making sure your pet is safe, along with spreading the word to other pet owners, is critical in protecting our furry best friends.
