Pet Owners Warned About Disinfectant Dangers

Costa Del Sol councils are spraying some streets in local towns with powerful disinfectant to fight the spread of the coronavirus.  Specialist teams have been spraying bin stores and refuse areas, and some army units have been involved in larger scale disinfectant operations.

The powerful chemicals have proved to be dangerous to animals.  Pet owners are being warned not to walk dogs in areas which have been treated, and to keep cats inside.  There are reports that some dogs have died after licking their paws which had picked up the disinfectant that would have caused a burning sensation on the skin.

Dogs Burned And Poisoned

Local Animal Rescue charity Last Chance have pleaded with dog owners to be careful.  They posted a picture of a dog in Estepona, who’s paws were burned by the chemicals in the disinfectant.  Other wildlife is being badly effected by the use of the disinfectant, which has reportedly killed birds and left many dead rats and mice around the municipal bins.
