Once again, Houston Matters goes to the dogs…and cats. Today, we focus on important steps you can take to dog and cat proof your holiday-infused home, prepare for visitors wanting to feed your dog or cat holiday treats they shouldn’t, and we’ll discuss the care and feeding of dogs and cats, in particular, during Houston’s winter. Yeah, yeah, it’s not as bad as winter elsewhere, but a recent cold snap reminded us our furry friends can get cold too.

Also, we’ll share some suggestions for those among you contemplating adding a canine or feline animal companion to your home this holiday.

We’ll talk with Dr. Lori Teller from the Meyerland Animal Clinic, and welcome anything else you’d like to know about your beloved dog or cat.
