It is a common phenomenon where we include our furry friends and strays in the entire celebration process. Deliberate or accidental exposure to colours can wreak havoc to the health of our dear four-legged friends. We include furry buddies to the celebration of festivities, without the realization about the adverse effects, they can have on them.
This Holi pledge to make the festival more accommodative of all pets and strays. We do not realize how the harmful substances present in the colours can affect them, the worse being they cannot even communicate the same. We know you care for furry as much as we do and so here are 5 tips to enjoy a pet-friendly Holi this year:
