    E-cigarette alert after rise in Pet Poisonings

    Most people who use E-cigarettes may not realize that the cartridges (even if empty) have the potential to poison a pet, if ingested or chewed on. This would most likely apply to puppies and dogs, but would be especially dangerous to kittens who chew on everything. Cannabis cartridges may have the same potential.

    This article on POC http://pictures-of-cats.org/vets-issue-e-cigarette-alert-after-rise-in-pet-poisonings.html speaks to the harmful effects on pets, but I suspect it would also apply to toddlers or young children that might put these in their mouth while teething, or out of curiosity.

    Thanks so much Shandi ...

    I have recently been pulled back into animal rescue after a friend reported the strange disappearance of three cats ( no bodies, no signs of predators, no vultures ). She also found a lamb dead with a hole under it's chin, once again no signs of predators, no signs of sharp objects in the pen where she was found. In looking for the missing cats, I came across another woman who is reporting a crazy neighbor who is harming cats. Unfortunately, it's not only e-cigarettes harming our animals.

    This may be a good heads-up to post in a letter to the editor in the paper too.
