I called a veterinarian after pondering this issue, and he confirmed my concern. People in the areas hit by mud are walking their dogs. Since they are closer to the ground and subject to same health problems as humans, the vet said that people should take their dogs to walk down by the beach or another area without the mud. Montecito is full of toxic dust that could harm pets as well as humans.
