Did you know that a bag of chips could pose a deadly threat to your pet? Plastic bags are silent killers found in nearly every household.
I will always remember the first time in my career as an emergency vet that I was faced with a dog who arrived DOA (DOA means Dead On Arrival) from suffocation in a bag of potato chips. I admit- until then I didn’t realize that this could happen.
For pet care workers out there, you can share this downloadable poster with your team and clients to promote pet suffocation awareness.
What about the bigger picture? Did you know plastic bags are smothering marine life and pose other dangers to our planet?
