A warning has been issued by RSPCA Cymru in Holyhead, after six pets on the same road are believed to have been the victims of suspected poisonings.
It has been reported to the charity that, between three properties on Bryn Glas Road, five cats and a dog have been the victim of poisonings.
Reports were received by RSPCA Cymru on 12 March concerning the poisoning of a cat, who – sadly – had to be put to sleep due to the extent of her condition; confirmed by veterinary inspection to have been as a consequence of anti-freeze.
Enquiries from the charity suggest that the cat is one of six pets on the same street to have been victim of suspected poisoning. This has prompted an appeal for information from RSPCA Cymru, and a warning to pet owners in the local area.
Anyone with information related to these incidences are urged to contact the RSPCA’s inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
RSPCA Inspector Andrew Broadbent said: “Our thoughts are with the owners of pets who have been poisoned in this way.
“It is not known whether these poisonings were intentional or deliberate – but to see so many in the same area of Holyhead is particularly concerning, and we’re reminding people to be cautious.
“At this time, it’s important local pet owners are vigilant. If a poisoning is suspected, people should remain calm, remove their pet from any suspected source of poison, and contact a vet immediately.
“Should anyone have any information linked to reported pet poisonings on Bryn Glas Road, they are urged to contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence.”
