We have all heard the dangers of second hand smoke for pets and people but studies now show that third hand smoke is also really bad for our pets.
According to a study done by Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and reported by Mulligan Stew pet foods, third hand smoke is comprised of the toxins that settle in the carpets, walls, upholstery, clothes and even skin and hair.
Second hand smoke is inhaled but third hand smoke is absorbed into the body by skin exposure, dust inhalation and digestion. Cats and other animals are at risk because they are closer to the surfaces that these toxins settle on.
If you smoke or live with a smoker...you could be endangering yourself and your pet...so QUIT!
