Please be extra cautious in Richmond and do not allow your dogs or other animals to drink from outdoor puddles or eat food on the ground. There has been another report of a dog poisoning, this time in the Terra Nova dike area. It’s believed the dog was poisoned from antifreeze in a puddle along the dike. Last week, a dog was poisoned by eating dog food laced with rat poison in Morris park.
Antifreeze is a highly toxic substance that tastes sweet to animals and is commonly used in car radiators. See the BC SPCA site for more information.
