The Scottish SPCA is urging dog owners in Dunfermline to be vigilant after a dog ate rat poison on Hogmanay.
We were contacted by a member of the public after their dog ingested rat poison on a grassy area near a footpath linking Old Kirk Place and Scotland Drive. The dog was checked by a vet and has made a full recovery.
Inspector Stephanie Ross said: “We received a report a poor dog ate a cup full of blue and yellow pellets. The area is a public path used by lots of dog walkers. Thankfully, the dog is okay but pet owners in the area should be vigilant.
“Attempting to deliberately harm an animal is a criminal offence.”
Our animal helpline can be reached every day between 7am and 9pm on 03000 999 999.
