Of course, the most important tip we always give our patients is know when to seek help.
The AVMA lists the following hypothermia symptoms to watch for: whining, shivering, seeming anxious, slowing or ceasing movement, weakness or burrowing in warm places. Frostbite may not be recognized for a few days after damage has set in.
If you suspect hypothermia or frostbite, contact our office immediately at 978.369.3503.
