This summer, wildfires have taken over and are burning in many parts of Western North America. If you are in or near any of the areas affected by wildfires, you’ve probably heard some talk (or experienced first-hand) how inhaling the smoke can affect our health. But what about our pets?
Air quality is worse than ever before in many areas. The same precautions you take for yourself should be applied to your furry four-legged friends.
These are some of the signs that your dog’s health is already being affected by the wildfire smoke:
The herbs in Lung Care help to soothe a spastic, barking cough related to smoke inhalation by relaxing and dilating the nasal passages and the lungs. They also work to help your pet’s lungs clear away debris that can accumulate when the wildfire smoke is thick. Mucilaginous herbs help to coat the lungs in a soothing gel to reduce inflammation and irritation. The herbs also work to thin excess mucus in the breathing passages to allow more oxygen into the lungs.

You should consult with your veterinarian if your dog is experiencing new or worsened symptoms of respiratory problems. Your vet might choose to use oxygen therapy if smoke inhalation has occurred. Some serious dangers of smoke inhalation in pets include thermal injury, carbon monoxide poisoning, hydrogen cyanide poisoning, and pneumonia.
Keep your dog busy indoors instead by giving them a meaty bone to enjoy or work on some obedience training.
