  • Smoking

    so I have a question.. I am sure someone on this board has some info and can save me some time

    its actually a two part question I guess..

    One: why do clients nit pick every single thing about their dog.. ie: she cant go outside for two days after having a bath she may get a chill, or the ones who worry about one hair out of place.. or my fave, no perfume it bothers my nose... you know the type-- yet their dog reeks of cigarette smoke? Maybe I will never understand that one..

    Which brings me to question 2.. has any research been done on the effects of second hand smoke with pets? I'd love to make a little brochure or something to have as reference on hand.

    Thanks

    It definitely is harmful to pets and if they are having an allergic reaction, it may be to the smoke in the air. There were other longer articles, but this would be easy to print out and give to your clients.

      Well, your second question has been handled, so I'll try to tackle the difficult one. Why do people nit pick? Because they can. Because they're neurotic. Because they're worrying about things that make no difference so they don't have time to worry about the things that do. And just because they can.

      The perfume/cologne problem? Well, even if they smoke they can still have a fragrance allergy. Smoke doesn't bother me, but some colognes give me migrains and others can cause asthma attacks. Most of them make me sneeze my head off.

      Stephen: Exactly me too. I check out of hotel and motel rooms today that overload with commercial perfumes. What isn't often said is that synthetic perfumes are NOT tested, and most synthetic perfumes SUPPRESS the human immune system. Today I take my own shampoo to the groomer of our dogs so I know we don't have to deal with reactions to some shampoos that are radical on some people with sensitivities.

        We definitely have had dogs come in to out vet with problems from the owners smoking. As for the dogs who cant go out , well thats the owners problem tell em to buy a coat.

          We have a lady that has a Borderdoodle and she is a nut. She's one of those that sits there and coddles him while she drops him off talking about how sorry she is that she has to leave him etc etc. Then she insists that he doesn't go in a kennel because "he'll catch a chill" The sad part is the dog is the sweetest most wonderful dog to groom. It makes me feel bad that that sweet dog has to put up with his crazy owner.
