ARKADELPHIA, Ark (KTHV) - Just like humans, animals can also be at risk for frostbite and hypothermia.

One important safety tip: don't leave your pets in the car, as it can get as cold as a refrigerator. Veterinarians also recommend investing in some winter gear for your animals, and keeping them layered.

"Big things are tips of ears, tail tips and the paws are pretty susceptible to frost bite, and it just takes a few minutes really. The cold and the salt and everything in those paw pads can cause cracking and bleeding." said Veterinarian Dr. Travis Anderson.
