Tips to Keep Pets Safe from Wildfire Smoke
Many cities along the east coast have been impacted by traveling smoke from Canada’s wildfires. People and their pets are having issues with poor air quality. So, how do you keep your pets safe from wildfire smoke? Try and limit time outdoors. Of course, even the smallest bit of exposure can affect your pet. Signs to look for of concern include coughing or gagging and unusual bouts with lethargy.
