If you have a dog and live in the area of Richmond, the city would like you to know something very important. Pet owners are being warned that poison meat and needles have been found at some off-leash dog parks in the city.

A warning was posted by the Steveston Veterinary Hospital on Instagram:

“WE ADVISE KEEPING YOUR PETS ON LEASH UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE” reads the Instagram post.

There are other dangers as well. Jeff Curr is a pet owner who saw something unusual on a popular dog walking trail in Burnaby earlier this month. Upon taking a closer look, he found raw beef with at least a dozen sewing needles sticking out of the meat.

The Richmond RCMP should be contacted at 604-278-1212 immediately if you spot anything suspicious. If you feel that your dog has ingested something dangerous, they should immediately be taken to the Vancouver Animal Emergency and Referral Centre.
