As a result of the high rates of fine particles and ozone in the air in Mexico City and the metropolitan area, authorities issued a series of recommendations on how to lower the impact pollution has on your health

But how can you protect your pets from the environmental contingency?

The UNAM's Faculty of Veterinary and Zoological Medicine has issued some recommendations to protect cats and dogs during the contingency.

The UNAM asked pet owners to:

1. Keep your pets inside the home as long as possible

2. Protect their food and water dishes

3. Pets must sleep inside

4. Animals shouldn't carry any physical activity outside

The UNAM faculty emphasized that if your pet is a puppy, sick, or very old, you should take extreme precautions and immediately take them to the vet in case you notice something is wrong with them.

Moreover, Mexico City 's Environment Ministry asked pet owners not to leave their pets locked inside cars or any other closed space.

The Animal Protection Agency asked pet owners to be alert and to take their pets to the vet in case they cough, sneeze, vomit, have nasal and eye secretions, or eye redness.
