Most folks know that you can’t trust everything you read on the Internet, but it’s easy to be scared by horror stories that purport to be true. A long-running viral Facebook post claims that ice water can be deadly for your dog. Accompanied by one dog’s harrowing tale of near-death, it’s an article that has been shared tens of thousands of times, lending it even more credence. There’s just one problem: it’s not really true.
A Fox News station in Michigan decided to ask a veterinarian about the post, and his explanation will surely put your mind at ease.
