Winston, a Yorkshire Terrier from Leeds, has made a recovery from long-term chest problems, no he lives in a smoke-free home.
After forty years of smoking, his owner Dot, gave up last May. Since then, Winston has had a new lease of life! Dot told the PDSA – who had been treating Winston – about the improvements she’d seen:
“His appetite has really increased plus he has a lot more energy, and he doesn?€™t need an afternoon nap like he used too!”
PDSA Veterinary Surgeon Carolyn Oldridge, added:
“Pets can be affected by breathing in second-hand cigarette smoke. Although Winston’s cough hasn’t gone completely, it has improved significantly thanks to Dot giving up.”
