Second Hand Smoking Around Pets

Ever thought how smoke can impact your pet’s health?

We all know the serious impact smoking can have on our health, however it comes as a surprise that our beloved four-legged friends are also at risk from the same smoke.

A number of studies have indicated that pets too face health risks when exposed to the toxins in secondhand smoke. Pets not only breath in smoke-filled air, but are also susceptible to ingesting the remaining toxic particles which lay in the environment around them and on their coats. This can then cause respiratory problems such as chronic bronchitis, allergies and even nasal and lung cancer in dogs and lymphoma in cats. Recognising nicotine poisoning in your pet is important – call your vet immediately if you see the following symptoms:


  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Drooling


In order to better protect our pets from second hand smoke, it is important to take your cigarette outside. Ensure you wash your hands after smoking before you stroke your pets and keep your ashtrays clean – don’t leave them for your pets to find.

Has your pet been exposed to cigarette smoke? We recommend taking your pet to the vets for a full health check and examination to protect them from any underlying long term conditions.
