Secondhand (and Third-hand) Smoke May Be Making Your Pet Sick
If you’re a smoker, you probably realize the dangers smoking may pose to your health. But have you ever thought about how the habit affects your pet?
According to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) veterinarian Carmela Stamper, the news is not good.
“Smoking’s not only harmful to people, it’s harmful to pets, too,” Stamper says. If 58 million non-smoking adults and children are exposed to tobacco smoke, imagine how many pets are exposed at the same time.
