Asbestos and Threats to Your Pets

Asbestos is an extremely dangerous substance that can lead to life-threatening conditions such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. Most studies on the effects of asbestos exposure have centered on humans, but it is very likely that animals and, more specifically, household pets could have suffered from asbestos exposure, as well.

If a pet’s owner worked in an asbestos mine or in another environment in which he or she came in close contact with asbestos fibers, it is very likely that this individual could have transported these dangerous fibers back home on his or her clothing. If pets then came into contact with their owners and their owners had asbestos fibers on their skin or clothing, it is possible that pets could have inhaled these fibers.

If your pets have suffered from exposure to asbestos, then your own risk for exposure is very real, too. If you or someone you love might have been exposed to asbestos, contact an experienced asbestos lawyer with Williams Hart today by calling 800-781-3955 to discuss your medical and legal options.

Indirect Contact with Asbestos

Generally, people who develop serious conditions related to asbestos exposure have been directly exposed to the fibers. However, indirect exposure can certainly occur as well, threatening not only the carrier of these fibers, but those they come into contact with. Indirect means of asbestos exposure include:

  • Fibers on clothing
  • Fibers in hair / on skin
  • Fibers stuck to shoes
  • Fibers on work equipment

In these ways, workers may have indirectly exposed their loved ones, and even their pets, to asbestos fibers, endangering them unknowingly.
