Flint Water Crisis: Dogs Get Lead Poisoning, Too

Article Author: Tracy Connor

This article discusses the impact of the Flint water crisis, but aimed at the dog level or pet level. That yes, the water is dangerous and its impacts on people need to be addressed, but subjecting your pets to the same circumstances adds to the problem. The Michigan Department of Agricultural and Rural Development has been without lead toxicity in pets for the past five years, until the Flint water crisis this year.

The article simply addresses and brings to light the fact that lead affects more than just humans, and if you have a household pet, it would be in your best interest and therefore the best interest of your pet to take the same precautionary measures as humans are taking.
