Pet Advisory During Haze Season. While We Aim To P..



While we aim to protect ourselves from the haze, don’t forget our animal friends’ well-being!

Most of us would grab our N95 masks during this season, but please don’t make your pet wear one too. Our vets advise against doing so because obscuring their mouths with masks might prevent heat from being dispelled and cause a heat stroke.

When the PSI is above 200, keep your pets indoors if possible and avoid taking your dog for extended walks or vigorous exercise outdoors.

Switch on the air-conditioner, purifier or fan and replace fresh water in pet bowls more frequently.

Extra precautions need to be taken with senior pets, animals with compromised immunity or animals with pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular disease.

Smaller animals are at greater risk of smoke inhalation due to their smaller lung capacity. If your pet shows any signs of breathing difficulty, teary eyes and/or nasal discharge, take him/her to the vet.
