Dog walkers warned ingesting Palm Oil could potentially threaten life of your dog.

Dog owners in Cornwall have been warned about the dangers of palm oil, after a white substance washed up on beaches in Newquay and Portheras.

Palm oil pollution on coves around Pendeen, owners must be vigilant whilst walking their dogs.

The white blocks were also found on Fistral Beach last month, according to the Cornwall council.

We acted as soon as the reports came in of this white substance being washed up on Fistral Beach, a council spokesperson told a local newspaper.

Cornwall Council has been working with the site manager to ensure warning posters have been posted along the beach, as a precautionary measure​.

"We have just been informed by the lifeguards that palm oil has been washing up on the beach,” said a local councillor. 

“This can be very dangerous for them so please keep a close eye on your dogs when walking them on any beaches.”

If your dog is showing any symptoms of feeling unwell whilst walking along the beach, take them immediately to your nearest vet.
