New Zealand campaign shows how harmful smoking is for animals


Passive smoking is harmful, everyone knows that. A New Zealand campaign now draws attention to the fact that the whole thing can also affect dogs, cats and other animals in an emotional way.

While many smokers are careful not to smoke in front of pregnant women or children, animals are often forgotten in this regard. It goes without saying that people smoke in front of the dog or cat. A moving campaign by the New Zealand company Quitline shows that this does not leave the animals without traces.

In a video with the title "Quit for your pets", in English "Stop for your pets", you can see a master who clearly loves his dog above all, but also exposes him to the harmful smoke of his cigarette.

And the four-legged friend? He follows his master at every turn. But cigarette smoke has had a negative impact on the health of the fur nose over the years - this is also shown by the emotional clip.

Quitline explains: "If you smoke near your animals, they get cancer twice as fast. Your best friend will follow you everywhere. Let him be healthy."

The message behind it is best to quit smoking - if not for yourself, then at least for your own pet!
