With the cold weather moving in, many families start to worry if they have everything to prepare their pets for winter. Winter storms pose a serious risk to pets’ safety as water valves and gates freeze; most driveways become impossible to drive or walk on.

Even if the weather warms up after a few days of sub-zero low temperatures, the danger of black ice is huge and walking your dog could require some serious skills and caution.
The first step is to pick out your main pack. It’s important to have a durable backpack to fit all your gear and supplies in. I suggest (and personally use) a backpack known as the MOLLE Assault Pack by made by Specialty Defense Systems or SDS for short. The quality of this pack is incredible. It is super durable and also somewhat waterproof. This is the same equipment that is provided to the soldiers presently serving in the United States military. So I say, if it’s good enough for combat, it’s good enough for me.

Additionally, your child may stop throwing up, but may still have diarrhea for another several hours, or much longer.
