7/22/2014 Smoke and Pets

Smoke can affect pets too. The same smoke particles that cause problems for people may also cause problems for animals. Don't force your animals to run or work in smoky conditions. If your pet has heart or lung disease, follow the same  guidelines as for sensitive people.  Contact your local veterinarian with specific questions and concerns.  Or if needed, you can call Dr. Thomas Gilliom with the Washington State Department of Agriculture, Animal Health Division at 360-725-5655.
