        Should a Dog Wear an Air Filter Face Mask for Air Pollution?

        Is it Safe for a Dog to Wear an Air Filter Face Mask?

        Many pet owners are asking questions about the safety of a dog wearing an air filter face mask. Can a dog wear an air filter mask? Is it safe? What are the warnings? What are the benefits?
