Good Morning to you and your pets.
RADIATION Risks and Treatment
I have been receiving many questions about radiation risks to our pets, and potential prevention measures.
At the current time there is NO radiation risk to our dogs and cats in North America following the earthquake and tsunami that caused severe damage to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex in Japan.
This is a serious situation, but the radiation risks are confined to Japan, and specifically the immediate area around the nuclear plant.
Radiation levels at and around the plant continued to fluctuate. Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said radiation of 250 millisievert an hour had been detected about 30 metres above the plant, which forced the helicopters to limit their operation to 40-minute periods.
Officials have ordered people living within 20 kilometres of the plant to leave the area, and advised those within 30 kilometres to remain indoors with their doors and windows shut.
DON’T give Potassium Iodide
Potassium Iodide may help protect our pets in the event of serious radiation exposure, BUT it comes with a host of side effects, and in this case there is NO reason to be giving it to your dogs or cats.
Side effects of Potassium Iodide include: vomiting, diarrhea, heart damage, severe allergic reactions ( rash, hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of mouth, face, lips, tongue), irregular heart beat, weakness, confusion, and potentially death.
Radiation Levels are being monitored
A multitude of government bodies, the EPA, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, along with Dept of Health Services are monitoring for Radiation- there currently is NO RISK, and none is being foreseen.
