On June 7, the air in New York was officially recognized as more polluted than in any other major city in the world. Thick smoke from wildfires burning hundreds of miles away in Canada has been covering the city for the second day. As clouds of smoke continue to hover over much of the northeast over the weekend, residents of affected areas are wondering how to protect themselves and their loved ones, including man's best friends. How to protect your pet, said the publication New York Post.

The air quality index hit 7 on June 343, far worse than New Delhi's 190 and New York's normal 100.

Air quality was the worst since the 1980s, including after the 11/XNUMX attacks, according to weather forecasters.

The pet experts at Rover share how to protect your pets from dangerous conditions:

  • close all windows;
  • use an air conditioner if possible to filter the air;
  • take short walks with a trip to the toilet, avoid long walks and other protracted outdoor activities;

On the subject: New York was covered in smoke: how to protect housing from dangerous air

Smoke inhalation in pets can be just as serious a problem as it is in humans. It is fraught with increased or chronic coughing, sneezing or runny nose.

In more severe cases, some animals may experience disorientation or confusion, fainting, convulsions, difficulty breathing, weakness or lethargy, uncoordinated walking/inability to stand, excessive salivation, prolonged open-mouth breathing, swelling of the mouth or upper airway, vomiting, or loss of appetite.

Experts advise pet lovers to watch for signs of respiratory stress and eye inflammation. If an animal exhibits these symptoms, owners should call a veterinarian immediately.

While pet owners can do everything they can to keep their furry friends safe and healthy, some dogs are at increased risk for respiratory disease, including dogs with asthma or bronchitis, puppies and older dogs, bulldogs, Boston terriers, and pugs.

Zoos in the Bronx, Central Park and Queens have closed to protect animals from thick clouds of smoke.

"Unhealthy" air and smoke are expected to persist until Sunday, June 11.
