Fire Pollution Impact On Your Pet

With the wild fires here in Lethbridge this past week, pet owners should keep in mind how the poor air quality outside may be affecting their pets.

Short term effects of air pollution may include irritation of the eyes, throat and nose. When the air quality is poor, it is best to limit outdoor activities. Shorten your game of fetch, as well as your daily walk around the block and do not leave your furry family member outside for extended periods of time.

If your pet shows signs of more serious illness such as trouble breathing, or experiences a shortness of breath and is unable to rise on their own, this may be an indication that they have suffered damage to their lungs from smoke inhalation. These pets should be seen by your veterinarian for immediate treatment.
