Frostbite in Cats and Dogs

Snow and cold can be just as difficult for our furry friends as it can be for us! Frostbite refers to the damage of body tissue that has been exposed to freezing temperatures for an extended period of time. In addition to hypothermia (low body temperature), all warm-blooded creatures including dogs and cats can fall victim to the damaging effects of frostbite when exposed to low temperatures. In cats and dogs, the feet, tail, and ears are at highest risk for injury because of reduced blood flow to those parts of the body.
