People stay inside, hiding from the Covid monster.

It’s winter, so in much of the United States, windows are closed.

Poor ventilation + family pets = sneezing and wheezing

Don’t blame the pets. Humans are supposed to be the smart ones. We can figure out a solution.

  1. Open the windows! People used to sleep with the windows open, even in cold weather, to get the benefit of air circulation. Now we are afraid of the cold, but is sneezing and wheezing better than using an extra blanket.
  2. Wipe down the pets once day with a damp cloth.
  3. Drink a lot of water.
  4. Change your pillow case 3 times a week.

Good luck!
