Protect your pets from smoke and ash

The Okanagan (Smokanagan) has seen its fare share of smoke and the  ash that goes with it sometimes, the results on our health can be dangerous. This is also true of your pets. Pets can breathe in tremendous amounts of smoke and ash during wildfire events such as we are seeing here in the Kelowna area, so they need to be protected. It is a good idea to limit their outdoor activity during smokey days and to make sure their water dish is filled with clean water. Also, be sure to clean the dish daily, as they can build up with pollutants. 

Pets fur can also be a place the harbours lots of ash and dirt and this will be brought, not only into your homes but also their beds. It is important to give your dogs more frequent bathes and provide for them regular grooming so their fur stays clean and healthy. The dirt, ash can build up on their skin and cause additional issues that you want to avoid. Barkleysmuttland is here to help for all your dog grooming needs. We also love cats and groom cats as well.
