Check out 97.1 ZHT Friday mornings for Frankie’s Furry Fridays spotlighting an adoptable pet from the Utah Humane Society.

3/1/19 – This week’s pet is Miss Ashley! She is a 5 year old female spayed tabby looking for her forever home. Although she appears a little stand offish and grumpy at first, she is a total sweetheart! Ashley would do best in a home without other cats, and it is unknown how she does with dogs.  For more information on Ashley please contact the Humane Society of Utah at 801.261.2919.

You can listen to the complete morning show and catch Ashley’s spotlight and the interview with our very own Dr. Jeff Simmons here.

Winter Safety for Your Pets

During winter months it is important to keep your pets warm and safe. Here are a few tips to help your pets enjoy the winter wonderland outside.

— If it’s too cold for you, it’s probably too cold for your pet. When temperatures drop pets should not be kept outdoors for extended periods of time. Pets can become hypothermic, suffer frost bite or even death.

— Wipe off paws and dry off fur after returning inside. Removing salt and snow from your pet’s paws and fur can prevent irritation from ice melt and dried out skin.

— Keep antifreeze and other chemicals out of reach from your pets. Ingestion of antifreeze can result in kidney failure if not treated immediately and other chemicals can also have severe consequences. Prevention is the best option when it comes to toxin exposure.

— Pets may need a few extra calories during winter months. Offering a few extra treats, or a little more at meal times can help meet the caloric needs during cold weather. Keep in mind that most animals will put on some winter weight; however, this should be a small amount of weight that will be lost in the spring.
