for all you smokers, next time you light up that cigarette, just remember you are slowly killing your own dog
Second Hand Smoke-Hamful to your dog!
We have friends that visit us on a regular basis who smoke. How could this affect our dog?
There are a number of ways that second-hand smoke can affect your dog. For one thing, smoke can damage the sensitive lungs in a dog (small dogs are especially vulnerable). In addition, the fumes can set off a cold that can lead to more serious, sometimes life-threatening conditions. It can also cause irritation to your dog's eyes and throat. And according to studies done by Colorado State University's College of Veterinary Medicine, dogs who live with smokers are more likely to get cancer than dogs that live with non-smokers. So the next time your friends come to visit, ask them politely to go outside before lighting up - your dog will appreciate it.
