Don’t attempt to rescue your pet from ice

No one wants to see their pet in danger. So when dogs venture out over snow-covered ice that is camouflaging the water below, it’s no wonder people go after them. Sometimes, dogs have already fallen through  the ice, making the rescue attempt even more risky for the owner. Our Paramedics urge you to call 9-1-1 rather than trying to rescue your animal. Without the right equipment and a team of helpers, your chance of survival is less likely than your pet’s.
