Air quality is something most of us are concerned about. Breathing harmful pollutants and contaminants can cause serious harm to our bodies, as well as lead to conditions and diseases that can cause an early death. Plus, no one likes to move about when they can't breathe very well and you can literally see particles floating in the air. It makes for going about your daily life and doing the things you enjoy doing not-so-fun.

Good Air Team, the maker of K9 Mask®, is a company that makes face masks for dogs. Our mission is to protect your dog from these harmful contaminants in the air, such as smoke, dust, ash, chemicals, and toxins. Just like in humans, when your dog breathes in polluted air, they can become sick as well. However, unlike humans, dogs have to go outside in this type of weather for potty breaks. Thus, having an air pollution mask for your dog will keep them healthy and well. Below, we'll offer up some tips on how you can protect your dog from air pollution.

Monitor Your Indoor Air Quality

Your indoor air can become contaminated with harmful substances as well if you're not careful. You'll want to change your home's air filter on a regular basis to ensure these harmful contaminants are not recirculating inside your home. Vacuuming also will help to remove pet hair and other indoor pollutants that can become trapped inside your carpet's fibers. K9 Mask recommends you vacuum once a day for optimal results. If you're a smoker, try to refrain from smoking inside. The contaminants from cigarette smoke will hang in the air especially with no air circulation, so it's best to smoke outside. Also, pick the best cleaning products in order to ensure you are removing as many pollutants as you can when you clean.

Keep Your Outside Time to a Minimum

When the air quality is poor outside, you'll want to do your best to avoid going outside, for both you and your dog. You'll want to allow your pet outside for potty breaks, but keep them short and sweet (this is no time for prolonged sniffs). You'll also want to postpone any long walks or runs with your dog. Exercise makes your dog take in more oxygen than normal, so they will be breathing in even more harmful air than when they are just outside. If your dog is normally an outside dog, see if you can bring them inside the garage or at least into a room in your home to protect their health.

Watch For Signs of Respiratory Distress

Even though you are doing your absolute best to protect your dog from the pollutants and contaminants, they still have to breathe, and when the air quality is poor, they will be breathing in some pollutants. Thus, you'll need to monitor your dog carefully for any signs of respiratory distress. These signs include:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Lethargic
  • Inability to stand or having a hard time walking
  • Salivating excessively
  • Inflammation of their mouth, eyes, skin, or airway
  • Excessive coughing, sneezing, or vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Open-mouth breathing
  • Seizures
  • Drippy nose
  • Cyanosis, or blud skin
  • Confusion
  • Fainting

If you see any of these signs that are concerning to you and outside of the normal, then call your veterinarian right away. You'll want to have your dog examined right away because the above signs are symptoms of acute respiratory distress, which can be fatal to dogs.
