Vets Warn Cat and Dog Owners About Danger of Himalayan Salt Lamps

By

If you've been on Instagram lately, you've probably seen a few Himalayan salt lamps in the backgrounds of selfies. They're all the rage recently, but vets have issued a warning to cat owners about the dangers of the trend after a cat was taking seriously ill. 

Maddie Smith, from New Zealand, woke up in June to find her cat Ruby walking strangely and holding her head in an odd position. Assuming it was just a cold, they got her wrapped up and left for work. But when they returned home, her condition had gotten far worse. Ruby was now unable to hear, see, or walk. She couldn't control her tounge and was unable to eat or drink as a result.
