Watson here, and I just want to remind you that this weekend is the CAPS big blowout garage sale. We will be at the Oasis Church, 1520 Maine St., on Friday, Sept. 17, and Saturday, Sept. 18.
On Friday the sale will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Saturday it will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. We have bargains galore and something for everyone. Your dreams can come true!
At last the smoke is clearing from our air. It has been a miserable summer for humans and animals. I decided to research exactly how smoke affects dogs’ and cats’ lungs.
Smoke inhalation injuries can occur with exposure to smoke in large or small quantities, and it results in direct heat damage to the upper airway and lining of the nose.
Fires produce a huge variety of damaging substances. Three of the most dangerous culprits that accompany smoke are carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and cyanide. Toxic particles fill the air, and can affect your BFF’s airways, lungs, and well-being.
Recent studies have estimated that breathing smoke-filled air is equivalent to a human smoking more than eight cigarettes a day. Pugs and bulldogs, puppies and senior dogs are especially at-risk.
Labored breathing, shortness of breath, and wheezing are clues to alert pet parents that the smoke is damaging and a trip to the veterinarian is advisable.
Not all problems from smoke affect breathing. The heat and irritants in the smoke can also cause damage to the eyes. Cats’ eyes are especially sensitive to smoke. They may squint due to pain and the third eyelid may cover the eye for protection.
The best defense is a good offense when it comes to smoke and your BFF. Keep us indoors as much as possible when the air index is dangerous and give us plenty of treats!
XOXO Watson
