A "rule of thumb," said the animal hospital on Facebook, "if you are cold, it is likely that your pet is cold too. Bring your pet inside the moment you start to feel cold yourself."
The following are symptoms a pet may exhibit when it's too cold:
- Appearing anxious
- Slowing down
- Stopping movement
- Looking for places to burrow
Other tips include providing pets with fresh, non-frozen drinking water and a suggestion to check under the hood of your car before starting it for a stray cat that may have been looking for warmth. Also, very young and pets have a harder time with cold weather, as well as animals with health conditions.
