#23 Exposing Dogs To Passive Smoking
A dog’s lungs, such as a human’s, are not capable of handling cigarette smoke well.
Smoking, in general, is credited for increasing cancer risks and cancer is one common problem in dogs. Unsterilized dogs are particularly prone to cancer risks be it prostate or mammary cancer.
Passive smoke can also develop or aggravate an already existing condition of respiratory problems. This can make breathing difficult for the dogs and be eventually fatal as oxygen supply to the body will decrease.
Other problems include increased eye infections, fatigue, and loss of appetite in the pet.
