PDSA

SOUTH SHIELDS, U K (Shields Gazette) - CONTROVERSIAL new book Time To Eat The Dog? The Real Guide To Sustainable Living suggests that pets damage the environment.

On the contrary, here at veterinary charity PDSA we believe that owning pets may help us improve our own carbon footprint – as well as provide many other benefits.

Many dog owners, for example, walk their children to school with their pet, rather than take the car.

This is good for our health as well as the environment.

Similarly, thousands of us take pets on holiday in the UK, rather than flying to distant holiday destinations, so helping cut carbon emissions.

Pets benefit us in many other ways too – evidence shows they can reduce stress and depression, improve health and teach responsibility to children.

Indeed, we know that schoolchildren with pets take about nine days less off school than those without.

So don't blame pets for the state of our environment; we first need to look at our own actions as responsible people and caring pet owners.
