Asbestos fibers pose a significant health threat to both pets and their owners. Asbestos is found in thousands of homes and buildings built between 1930 and 1980. Asbestos was a commonly used building material that when damaged over time can become airborne resulting in the fatal mesothelioma cancer. Both direct and second hand exposure has been proven to cause mesothelioma. Please take proper steps to protect your pets and families. Consult a certified asbestos abatement consultant when executing any home renovations that may involve asbestos.
We just got this health advisory and thought it was important to pass it along. Too often we forget that the same problems that effect humans can also effect our furry loved ones as well.
