Secondhand smoke and pets

Posted:

A lot more smokers might quit if they knew it could save the life of their pet. A study published in Tobacco Control says secondhand smoke can be just as deadly for pets as it is for humans.

Smoking has been linked to cancers, allergies and skin diseases in dogs and cats. But the study says a survey of 3,000 smokers show one out of three people knew that secondhand smoke could trigger cancer or other diseases in their furry friends.
