The snow and cold temperatures can take a toll on you four legged pets and can be harmful if you leave them out in the cold for a long time. 

One Ohio Dog shelter and adoption center recommends pet owners limit the amount of time your dog is out on a walk. 

Before you take them out, buddle them up. 

A fleece waterproof coat will keep them warm and dry. 

If you can get them on your pet, rubber boots will also come in handy. 

They may look like a fashion statement but they serve a purpose.

Offcials said dogs can get frostbite on their sensitive areas: ears, nose, paws and bellies.

If you’ve noticed that your dogs sensitive areas have turned blue or black, take them to their veterinarian immediately.
