Slugs and Snails and dogs!
Just thought I'd post this for anyone who doesn't know.
Keep an eye on any dog bowls you keep outside or in the awning. I've just gone in the awning and there was a massive snail in the dog's water bowl.
Slugs and snails carry lungworm which can be fatal in dogs. By the time you notice the symptoms, the lungworm has progressed and it sometimes means death of the dog.
Always err on the side of caution, take some Miltons with you and each morning (particularly in this damp weather), disinfect the dogs bowl with Miltons and then rinse with boiling water.
