Palm oil warning

Here in North Devon we’ve had a bit of a battering by the storm and this has also spelt bad news for dogs as the windy weather has reportedly been blowing toxic blobs of palm oil onto beaches. Palm oil is a waxy white substance which has a distinctive diesel-like smell. The smell is attractive to dogs who will frequently consume it.

Palm oil is unfortunately very toxic to dogs. If your dog does eat palm oil we would recommend you call us immediately so we can start appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

There have already been reports of the waxy white lumps turning up in the last few days on storm-lashed beaches in Devon. If you see palm oil on any of our local beaches please let us know so we can warn others.
