Smoke inhalation can cause cardiovascular and respiratory disease in animals, especially if they have been left outside for too long when the air quality is poor. If your pet has been outside be sure to look for symptoms, such as coughing or gagging, eye irritation, and throat inflammation. If your pet is experiencing severe symptoms, make sure to visit a local vet.
