Along with the cold winter months come a number of pet hazards. As the weather changes, we winterize  our cars, RVs and boats with antifreeze. Ingesting even a small amount of antifreeze can be deadly to  animals. It can cause kidney failure and damage the central nervous system. Cats and other small animals often seek the warmth of a car engine to nap. You might want to give your horn a quick honk, or tap on the hood of the car prior to staring it giving them the opportunity to move.
