Winter Warning

Winter Warning

 

Dangers of Pets ingesting salt/grit from the pavements.

This cold snap is set to hang around for a while and whilst pavements and roads are being regularly salted or gritted for our own safety, unfortunately this poses a risk to our pets.

After walking your dogs throughout the winter months, please ensure that you wash their feet immediately once you are home. This will avoid the ingestion of salt and other chemicals that are used in gritting material. It is also advisable to remove salt and grit from your own shoes as this may be attractive to your pets and they may want to lick it off.

If your dog becomes ill after a winter walk, please contact your vet immediately as prompt action may be required to prevent serious illness and even fatality.

We also mentioned a little earlier in the month about the dangers of antifreeze poisoning especially to cats, please read our advice on this here.
