You may have spotted smoky skies and falling ash throughout the North State this past week. Some residents as far as Sacramento are seeing the effects of the Mendocino and deadly Carr fires. 

As of Monday, air quality officials say that it is unhealthy for those sensitive to smoke and other airborne particles to be outdoors. This includes the very elderly, children, and even pets. Officials recommend staying in buildings and vehicles where the air is circulated, with clean air filters. 

There are ways to protect your four-legged friend too. A local veterinarian at the Chico Creek Animal Hospital says that, although there are no masks for dogs or cats, your pet should limit the amount of exercise and activity it has outdoors as long as the air quality advisory is in effect.

For now, there's still no clear answer on when the advisory will end, but we will have an update for you once we have that information.
