From Iceland - Advised not to bring dogs into the eruption

Kristín Jónsdóttir, group leader of nature conservation at the Icelandic Meteorological Office, has advised dog owners to leave their pets at home when traveling to Geldingadalur.

In a short post on Twitter, Kristín states that mineral measurements indicate that fluoride is found in the puddles around the eruption sites and that the pH value of the water is high.

Kristín has also pointed out that fluoride poisoning could be life-threatening for dogs.

Save our dogs!

In Hundasamfélagið, a Facebook page with over 42 thousand members who come together to discuss their dog needs and everything related to taking care of their dogs, there has been a lot of discussion about whether it is okay to bring dogs to the area.

Last Sunday, one member posted pictures of a stray dog ​​in the area, which was said to have gone very close to the lava in one place.

It is clear that people are divided on whether to bring dogs as some people think it is good to bring the dogs out to run around the area but many are worried about the gas in the area which could affect the dogs.
