Your smoke bad for pets
PET OWNERS have not yet got the message that their dogs and cats can get cancer from their second-hand smoke, according to British TV vet Professor Noel Fitzpatrick.
Fitzpatrick, who features in Channel 4 series The Supervet, said the smoke could give dogs cancer in their noses and cats in their intestines “because they lick you”.
Warnings, he said, did not seem to sink in until owners saw the problems “in real life” on television.
Fitzpatrick, who is known for designing bionic limbs for injured dogs and cats, was giving a lecture at the Hay Festival in Wales.
A University of Glasgow study showed pets were at greater risk from passive smoking than humans because they spent more time in the home. – Daily Mail
