While most of us know that second hand smoke is bad for us, we don’t always think about the dangers to our pets.
Tobacco smoke residue is most concentrated near the floor in the carpet, dust, and rugs. Since your dogs and cats spend most of their time on the floor closest to this residue, they are more exposed than we are.
Also remember that the residue can stick to their fur and paws from you. Since your pets don’t wash their paws, but lick them to get them clean. Now you see the ways your pets gets a higher dose of nicotine than you might think.
Your pet can get lung cancers just as easily as you can from second and third hand smoke.
